Monday night’s college hoops schedule is posted at Cappers Info, and we are taking a close look at some of the best games on the slate and making our NCAA basketball picks for the duels ahead.

College Basketball Matchup: Baylor Bears @ Texas Longhorns
Date: Monday, February 20th, 9:00 ET
Location: Frank Erwin Special Events Center, Austin, TX
College Basketball Odds: Texas -2
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

We know that home court advantage is king in college basketball, but we still have some big time problems backing the Longhorns right now. A loss to Okie State over the weekend really put the Horns behind the 8-ball, and we just don’t see how they are going to get into the NCAA Tournament without a big time run in the Big XII Tournament coming up in a few weeks. Those signature wins just don’t exist. Baylor isn’t playing well right now, having lost three out of four games, but we think that Texas is the greater of the two evils in this one. The Bears get back on track with a ‘W’ in Austin in this Lone Star State shootout.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Baylor -2

College Basketball Matchup: Connecticut Huskies @ Villanova Wildcats
Date: Monday, February 20th, 7:00 ET
Location: The Pavilion, Philadelphia, PA
College Basketball Odds: Connecticut -2
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

We really are at the day of reckoning for the defending national champs. The Huskies are just 2-7 ATS in their last seven games, and they have been crushed on the road in their last three efforts in conference since beating the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the middle of January. Villanova was toppled by that same Notre Dame team in OT over the weekend for its sixth straight failed attempt at a cover. UConn’s schedule has been a heck of a lot tougher though, and the Huskies have at least beaten the teams that they should be beating. This is a game that they should be winning.

NCAA Basketball Pick: UConn -2
