Toledo Rockets (24-6) @ Ball State Cardinals (20-10) – CBSS
Toledo is the top dog in the Mid-American conference, entering this matchup with a 15-2 record, although Ball State handed them their only home loss back in January.
The Rockets are exceptional at getting buckets from anywhere on the court, ranking 10th in offensive efficiency, and 2nd overall in 3-point percentage (40.1%).
But this Ball State team can also get hot behind the arc, and it’s worth noting that they are 23rd in the nation in 3-point percentage (37.7%).
Whoever converts most effectively from deep should emerge victorious, which was evident in their first meeting when Ball State shot 50% (11/22) from 3-point range, compared to 39% (7/18) for Toledo.
I think the Cardinals make another big statement against a Toledo team that they know they can beat.
I’ll take the underdog at home in this one.
PICK: Ball State +4
Akron Zips (21-9) @ Kent State Golden Flashes (24-6) – ESPNU
Akron’s Xavier Castaneda is likely to be the best player on the court in this one, averaging 21.8 PPG while also shooting over 85% from the charity stripe.
The Zips trail Kent State by a game in the Mid-American conference heading into their final tune up before the postseason.
These two squads are pretty evenly matched across the board, but Kent State gains separation boasting a defensive efficiency that ranks 34th in the NCAA.
The Golden Flashes are also unblemished at home, at a perfect 14-0 defending their turf.
Home court will be the difference in this one as Kent State looks for another win, propelled by the playmaking ability of senior guard Sincere Carry.
PICK: Kent State -4
New Mexico Lobos (21-9) @ Colorado State Rams (13-17) – FS1
New Mexico’s top scorers are the sons of former NBA Champion Eddie House and former NBA All-Star Jamal Mashburn.
Jamal Mashburn Jr. leads the Lobos with 19.4 PPG, while Jaelen House leads the team in assists (4.5 APG) while also chipping in 17 PPG.
New Mexico ranks 15th in the nation in points scored (81.1 PPG), but defensive woes have limited them to just 2 wins in the past 8 contests.
Fortunately for the Lobos, they face a Colorado State team that is 2nd to last in the Mountain West, managing just 46 points in their loss to San Jose State on Tuesday.
This New Mexico team has the talent to make some noise in the upcoming conference tournament, which was evident early on, when they opened the season with a 14-game winning streak.
These Lobos are primed to feast on the Rams in regular season finale on Friday night.
PICK: New Mexico -2.5
