Northern Kentucky swept the regular season series by scores of 73-63 and 75-71. Northern Kentucky is coming off of a remarkable defensive effort, where they made PFW look absolutely offensively challenged all night. Wright State knocked off the one seed, Cleveland State, in their last game. This should be a good game with a NCAA Tournament berth on the line, but I like Northern Kentucky to come away with the win.
