ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll stick with UConn. The Huskies haven’t showcased too many weaknesses so far, and they haven’t really been tested yet through three games. UConn shot a nice 54.7 percent from the field in their latest win, bagging a 47-36 rebounding advantage and hitting 11-of-28 (39.3 percent) from 3-point range. The Huskies should dominate the boards against Indiana, which will control the flow of the game here.
Speaking of Indiana, they shot a rough 3-of-16 (18.8 percent) from outside with just 20-of-32 (62.5 percent) from the line in their latest win. The Hoosiers had a slight rebounding edge 44-40, but it’s going to be much harder on the glass versus UConn. I don’t think Indiana gets too close in this one.
