ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll probably try Stony Brook. There’s not a ton to get excited about here, but we should have a competitive game if nothing else. The Seawolves didn’t play great versus Nebraska, shooting a middling 37.9 percent from the floor, 23.3 percent from 3-point range (7-of-30) and going 6-of-10 from the line. Stony Brook was outmuscled 45-28 on the boards as well. All of that said, the Seawolves should match up much better versus Rider. The outside shooting needs to improve, but Stony Brook will be able to cover if they can keep a nice rhythm throughout the game.
