The Seattle Redhawks look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight. On the season, Seattle is averaging 61.6 points on 44 percent shooting and is allowing 62.5 points on 45 percent shooting. Isiah Umipig is averaging 17.2 points and 2.9 assists while Jarell Flora is averaging 13.8 points and 4.4 rebounds. William Powell is grabbing 6.5 rebounds and Jack Crook is dishing 1.5 assists. The Seattle Redhawks have four players averaging at least 6.6 points, and they’re shooting 66.3 percent from the line and 38.9 percent from deep. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and has given up 63 or less points in six of its last eight games.
Although Seattle is playing great ball as of late, I'm afraid the Redhawks don't have the horses or the depth to hang with a motivated Colorado squad. I look for the Buffaloes to win this one rather easily.
