The Charleston Southern Buccaneers (14-17, 7-11 CONF) and the Radford Highlanders (20-10, 15-3 CONF) will meet on Thursday, March 5th for the quarterfinal match of the Big South Conference Tournament. The game will be played at 6:00 PM eastern time. 

Charleston Southern took down Presbyterian at home, 81-64 in the first round of the Big South Conference Tournament. Charleston Southern previously lost to Presbyterian, so it took a refocused and energized group at home to get the job done. Radford had a bye in the first round of the tournament, and their last game overall was a loss to Gardner-Webb, 70-62 at home. Radford went 15-3 in the conference this season and they are the #1 seed in this tournament.

Charleston Southern scores 69.5 points per game on 42.9 percent field goal shooting this season. Charleston Southern’s leading scorer and rebounder is G Philandrous Fleming Jr., who scores 17.5 points per game and earns 8.6 rebounds per game. Charleston Southern allows 72.3 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a -2.8 scoring differential so far this season. Charleston Southern also earns 32.4 rebounds, 13.5 assists, 2.5 blocks, and 6.0 steals per game as a team.

The leading rebounder for Radford is F Devine Eke, who earns 7.2 rebounds per game. Radford allows 66.0 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a +6.1 scoring differential so far this season. Radford also earns 36.0 rebounds, 13.7 assists, 2.2 blocks, and 5.2 steals per game as a team. 

Charleston Southern is 12-17 against the spread this season and 3-7 against the spread in their last ten games. Charleston Southern is also 7-9 against the spread on the road so far this season. Radford is 14-14 against the spread this season and 6-4 against the spread in their last ten games. Radford is also 3-8 against the spread at home so far this season.

The line has not been released for this game, therefore I will give my final score prediction and update this article tomorrow morning. I think this game will be closer than others may think. The Big South tournament is always wild, and although I think Radford is able to pull out the victory in this game, I would not be surprised if it comes down to the final buzzer. Radford wins 73-70. 

UPDATE: Now that the line is out, I obviously like Charleston Southern +12 in this game. I think it will be a lot closer than what Vegas thinks it will be, and I think Charleston Southern may get off to a hot start to keep them competitive throughout the whole game.
