Can Houston Win The National Championship?
Houston has been dominant this season, and anything less than a National Championship will leave this team disappointed. Houston has dominated all three games they have played, Houston in the last game against Stetson put up 79 points but even more impressive was the defense that put up only 48 points. LJ Cryer had a strong game putting up Houston putting up 21 points, two assists, and one rebound. There were three different players that put up 11 points. In this game, Houston is going to need the defense to step up and put the pressure on the Towson offense.
Towson Looks for Third Straight Win
Towson lost the first game against Colorado but since that point they have won two straight games. Against Coppin State, Towson was able to secure the 70-49 victory and in the last game against Robert Morris they were able to secure the 66-62 victory. Against Robert Morris, Towson was las led by Charles Thompson and he finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Tyler Tejada had a strong game putting up 13 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. Towson used a balanced attack and there were four different players that finished with at least 10 points.
Shane’s Free Pick
Houston’s defense has been strong and even on the road they are going to find success here. Towson scored only 62 points in the last game and they are going to struggle to get to that number here. This is a Houston team that prides itself on defense, and I expect they are going to lockdown here. Houston is going to get another strong start from LJ Cryer and it will be Houston that gets the job done. Back Houston against the spread.
