William & Mary likes to get out and run the floor leading to plenty of scoring by both them and opponents. The Tribe were quiet offensively in the first half verus Charleston on Monday and the result was an eight point hole before a 49 point second half gave the home team a 74-63 victory. The Tribe got plenty of production from 55% marksmanship while the Cougars 47% fell short. Marcus Thornton poured in a contest best 26 points on 10-17 from the field including a 3-5 mark from long range while Brandon Britt tossed in 15 followed by a nine point effort from Tim Rusthoven.
Delaware has been on a great run but my gut has a bad feeling about this. I don't like picking against my Blue Hens but I am and I hope I'm dead wrong...
