Stetson faces Bowling Green on Monday, March 22nd at the Ocean Center for an NCAA basketball CBI Quarterfinal matchup.
Stetson has made it to the quarterfinals of the CBI! Well, every team participating automatically does, but nonetheless, Stetson should be proud of a season full of improvements. After taking a bad loss to a non-division 1 school in its first game, Stetson rebounded for a strong conference record (which included an upset win over the ASUN's champion in Liberty). Stetson finished the season at 11-14 with a 7-9 conference record. Stetson's leading scorer this season was G Rob Perry, who scored 14.3 points per game for the Hatters. Stetson as a team has scored 72.0 points per game, has earned 34.8 rebounds per contest and has allowed 70.7 points per game to its opponents as well.
Bowling Green has to be disappointed with its season out of the MAC this year. Bowling Green was actually the pre-season favorite to win the MAC, but the Falcons underperformed throughout the season. Bowling Green winded up with a 14-11 record overall and a 10-8 conference record in what was a very competitive MAC conference. Bowling Green had its highs, like its wins over Buffalo and Ohio, but also the lows of losses to teams like Western Michigan. Bowling Green's leading scorer was G Justin Turner, who has scored 19.3 points per game for the Falcons. As a team, Bowling Green scored 78.5 points per game, earned 38.4 rebounds per game, and allowed 75.4 points per game to its opponents as well.
Bowling Green opens as a 9-point favorite and the total is set at 152. I know both of these teams can score, but I still think this total is a bit steep. Stetson's defense is decent and Bowling Green should be able to get timely stops as well. Even if both teams are in the 70s here we could get under that total, so I will take the under here.
