PICK: I’m going to stick with Toledo. The Rockets are on a great run right now, getting contributions from several different players on the team. Toledo had a half-dozen players finish in double-digits during their last game, and they’ve hit 70 or more points in each of their last six outings. The Rockets jumped out to a 46-30 lead at halftime the last time these teams met, and cruised to a 91-74 win. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a similar result in this one.
