UNC Greensboro Spartans (8-5) vs The Citadel Bulldogs (8-2)

I think the case that you could make for UNC-Greensboro here is that the Citadel didn’t really play anyone until conference play and it’s resulted in back-to-back losses to VMI and Furman. The loss to VMI stings, but Furman is 79th on KenPom’s ratings while VMI is 244rd. Yeah, that’s why that one hurts. However, this Citadel team is still the 2nd highest scoring team in the country, putting up 93.3 PPG while UNC-Greensboro is only averaging 72.1. I’m not saying the Spartans don’t win this game, but if you can keep it to six points against Furman, you can keep it within 13.5 against UNC-Greensboro. I’ll take the Citadel and the points as my premium pick for this game.
