Shane’s Free Pick

Princeton has been quite impressive heading into this game and they are going to continue the success here scoring. In the last game the offense scored 78 points, and they are going to find enough offensive success in this game to keep this game close against Creighton. Creighton’s defense hasn’t been exactly the strength this season. Back Princeton against the spread.
