Radford vs. South Carolina Upstate Prediction

I’m on Radford here. Statistically the Spartans are the better team on both ends of the floor and I think in what could end up being a close game, the Highlanders owning a huge edge at the foul line could and should be the difference. I think USC Upstate’s overmatched here and I look for Radford to get the job done in this one. Give me Radford.
