ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’m going to take a stab on Binghamton here. The Bearcats have seen a couple of pretty good teams in their trio of games so far, and they’re coming off a confidence-boosting win versus an overmatched Keystone team. Binghamton shot a nice 58.7 percent from the field in that one and pulled down 58 rebounds in a well-rounded performance. This game obviously won’t be so simple, but the Bearcats have developed some quality experience in the early-going and I think they can maintain a cover pace if all goes well. Loyola MD has scored pretty well themselves with 150 combined points in two games, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see a fairly high total in this one. Should be an entertaining matchup.
