PICK: I’m probably going to stick with NC State. The Wolfpack didn’t shoot all that well versus Kansas on Wednesday, going 38.7 percent from the floor and 8-of-22 (36.4 percent) from 3-point range. NC State did hold strong on the boards with a 38-39 deficit (12-10 offensive). Considering how good the Jayhawks are, that’s pretty impressive. As for Dayton, they had a pretty terrible first half in their Wednesday game versus Wisconsin and shot just 30.2 percent from the floor for the game. If both teams are on, this should be a pretty great matchup. That said, I still like NC State a little better on the cover.
