You have to wonder how motviated the Bonnies are going to be for the NIT, as they made a solid case to be in the NCAA Tournament. St. Bonaventure can use it as motivation or come out and simply crap the bed. Either way, Wagner is compeitive and hasn't lost two straight games since the start of the season.
The Bonnies may win, but I like the value of the Seahawks and the points.
