They include Florida State, Houston, Michigan, Gonzaga and Oregon.

According to our database, since 1992, teams making a right-back appearance in the SWEET 16 are 91-58 SU but only 66-78-5 ATS in this round of the tourney

Rockets Red Glare

The NBA trade deadline closed yesterday after a flurry of late moves.

Through it, ESPN Stats & Info reports that the Houston Rockets came out of it in better shape than most.

Consider: After the Victor Oladipo trade yesterday, here’s how the Rockets’ have fared since the James Harden trade:

4 first-round picks … 5 first-round pick swaps … 20 games with Victor Oladipo … Avery Bradley … Kelly Olynk … Dante Exum … D.J. Wilson … and D.J. Augustin.

To my recollection, there has never been a player worth anywhere close to that kind of bounty.
