I’m leaning towards William & Mary here. Omaha is battle tested against North Texas, but I just like what I’ve seen from the Tribe a bit more in a spot like this and I just feel they have the greater scoring depth in this game. I also want the side that’s going to hit their free throws and the Tribe are also better from behind the arc. Give me William & Mary here.
