The San Diego Toreros are the more proven team and had a much tougher schedule this season, but the Hartford Hawks went toe-to-toe with LIU Brooklyn twice this season, which is an NCAA Tournament team. Hartford has also had its fair share of road success this season and is being outscored by just 0.4 points on the road overall. The San Diego Toreros aren't exactly a great offensive team and can allow you to hang around. I'll take a stab with all of these points.
