The UConn Huskies and Tennessee Volunteers meet Wednesday afternoon in college basketball action at the Lahaina Civic Center.
The UConn Huskies hope for another big victory after beating Chaminade, 93-82. In the victory, UConn shot 61.3 percent from the field and had just nine turnovers. Jalen Adams led the Huskies with 25 points and 11 assists while Rodney Purvis had 23 points and six rebounds. Vance Jackson was the third double-digit scorer and Christian Vital had three assists off the bench. The UConn Huskies have all the talent in the world to be a serious NCAA Tournament team, they simply have to take care of the basketball and find quality looks offensively. UConn should be able to turn its season around before it’s too late. The UConn Huskies have won four of their last six neutral site games.

The Oregon Ducks look for another victory after beating the Tennessee Volunteers, 69-65 in overtime. In the victory, Oregon shot 34 percent from the field and had 21 turnovers. Dillon Brooks led the Ducks with 17 points and three rebounds while Chris Boucher had 11 points and four rebounds. Dylan Ennis dished four assists in 34 minutes and Jordan Bell grabbed nine total rebounds. Oregon still has yet to look like the title contending Oregon Ducks, as they've been held under 70 points in three of their five games and continue to be sloppy with the basketball. The good news for Oregon is that Brooks is slowly starting to find himself since returning from injury and could open things up offensively for everyone else once he's 100 percent comfortable on the court. The Oregon Ducks have won eight of their last 10 neutral site games.
The Ducks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Huskies are 37-18-1 ATS in their last 56 neutral site games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 6-2-1 in Huskies last 9 neutral site games and the under is 4-0 in Ducks last 4 overall.
Once again, the Oregon Ducks aren't polished enough to be laying these type of numbers. This is also a chance for UConn to make up for a poor start by beating a ranked team. I have to side with the points in this spot.
