The Arizona Wildcats and Wright State Raiders face off on Friday in the Round of 64 college basketball NCAA Tournament game at Viejas Arena.
Wright State comes into this game with a 22-13 record overall and they looked quite impressive on Wednesday going against the Bryant Bulldogs. The offense scored 93 points including 49 points in the second half on the way to the victory. Tanner Holden has been the top player for Wright State this year averaging 19.8 points while shooting 49.5 percent from behind the three point line. There are three different players for Wright State that are averaging at least 14.3 points per game. The Raiders like to push the pace and they are averaging 76 points while their defense is giving up 71.4 points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Arizona Wildcats who sit with a 31-3 record overall and they have won six games in a row. In the last game against UCLA the offense was strong scoring 84 points and that was enough to lock up the victory. Guard Benedict Mathurin has been the top player for Arizona averaging 17.4 points while shooting 46 percent from the field and 37.4 percent from behind the three point line. There are four different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game. Arizona is averaging 84.6 points while their defense is giving up 67.5 points per game. In this game Arizona expects they are going to win, and they can rest the starters for most of the second half.
The over is 6-0 in Arizona's last six games overall. The over is 5-0 in Arizona’s last five neutral games as a favorite. Arizona is 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven NCAA Tournament games.
Wright State doesn’t play any defense, but they have a good offense and I expect they are going to find offensive success in this game. Look for Wright State to score at least 65 points and that will be enough to cover the spread. Arizona resting some starters late could help too if it's required that they do a backdoor cover.
