UNCG vs Furman

Rotation #847
UNCG +4 over Furman (loss)
I think the wrong team is favored in this game.  UNC Greensboro has been on a nice winning streak and their offense has not been an issue.  Furman has gone through a lot of cold streaks on the offensive end and I believe the Spartans are the better overall team.  This team started out slow, but now are red hot and should continue that streak tonight.  Take UNC Greensboro.

Samford +9.5 over Mercer (win)
This is going to be a great game.  Mercer might have a bit more talent, but I don’t think it is worth double digits.  This is a team that has struggled in the past few games and really hit a brick wall after a nice to start to the year.  Mercer is struggling to consistently score so winning by this huge margin will take a perfect game from them.  This should go down to the wire.  Take Samford.

Miami +9.5 over North Carolina (cancelled)
UNC is getting a few bonus points here because they just beat Duke.  This is a physical team that can get easy buckets, but Miami actually has the size to go toe to toe with them in the paint.  I just don’t trust UNC as a double digit winner with how bad they shoot foul shots and how sloppy they are with the basketball at times.  Miami is close to getting Chris Lykes back.  This is a team that has played short handed and bench guys have gotten a lot of minutes.  When this team returns to full health they could be dangerous come tournament time.  Take Miami.
