ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll probably take a stab on New Hampshire, but you could make a case either way. Both teams are coming off pretty flat losses and could use a lift in Tuesday’s game. The Wildcats shot a middling 36.1 percent from the floor in the George Washington defeat, along with just 4-of-31 (12.9 percent) from beyond the arc and 64.7 percent (11-of-17) from the line. If there’s good news it’s that New Hampshire only turned the ball over seven times.
Marist is in the same boat, shooting 38.2 percent overall versus Binghamton with a 41-25 rebounding deficit. If both teams are on point here, I could see a competitive, high-scoring game. I like New Hampshire slightly better cover-wise but it’s a coin flip.
