The Liberty Flames and the Northwestern Wildcats will face off in Round 1 of the Cancun Challenge from the Hard Rock Riviera in Mexico.

Liberty is 2-2 after a loss to Southern Miss last Friday night. The Flames could not recover after falling behind by 17 at halftime, eventually losing to the Golden Eagles by four points. Liberty is scoring 78.5 points per game, while shooting 47.4% from the field, and 35.7% from deep.

Fifth-year senior Darius McGhee has picked up where he left off. The 5’9 guard was one of the top scorers in the country last season at 24.6, and he filled it up last week with 55 points in both games. McGhee leads Liberty in scoring at 20.3 ppg, while his running mate Brody Peebles is second on the team at 15.8 ppg, after scoring a career-high 24 points in the loss to USM.

Northwestern is 4-0 after defeating PFW in Evanston last Friday.  The Wildcats competed in their closest battle yet, only defeating the Mastodons by eight points after three double-digit victories to open the season. Northwestern is scoring 70.8 points per game, while shooting 41.4% from the floor, and 36.9% from three.

Boo Buie’s return has eased the loss of Pete Nance to UNC. The senior guard has been the key to their first 4-0 start in nearly a decade, and he scored a career-high 28 points in the win over PFW. Buie posted a strong line of 17.3 ppg, 4.5 rpg, and 5.5 apg. Robbie Beran has taken on a bigger role in Nance’s absence as well, scoring 20 points in the win over Cleveland State, and posting personal-bests of 13.3 ppg and 6.8 rpg. 

Liberty is 1-2 against the spread this season, with a 3-0 over/under record. Northwestern is 3-1 ATS this year, with a 0-4 o/u record.

Northwestern looks pretty good after a 4-0 start that includes a road win over Georgetown. The Wildcats come into this tournament as one of the bigger teams, and they should tower over the Flames here, controlling the paint and rebound battle along the way. We’ll find out just how real Northwestern is this season next week with matchups with Pitt and Michigan State looming, but they should keep things going here as the superior team. The Wildcats have the size to neutralize Darius McGhee and effectively put out the Flames with a win and cover here. Take Northwestern’s spread.
