The Colgate Raiders and the Delaware Blue Hens meet in college basketball action from the Palestra on Friday.

The Colgate Raiders will look to build on their 85-66 win over Monmouth in their last game. Tucker Richardson leads the Raiders in scoring and assists with 18.2 PPG and 5.5 APG along with 4 RPG while Ryan Moffatt has 14.5 PPG with 4.2 RPG and 2.8 APG. Oliver Lynch-Daniels has 12 PPG and Keegan Records has 11.3 PPG with a team-high 7 RPG to lead the Raiders in rebounding while also rounding out the group of double-digit scorers for Colgate up to this point in the season. As a team, Colgate ia averaging 83.7 PPG on 49.1% shooting from the field, 40.9% from three and 73.7% from the foul line this season.

The Delaware Blue Hens will try to rebound after a 92-58 loss to Duke last time out. Jameer Nelson Jr. and Jyare Davis each have a team-high 15.3 PPG as the lone pair of double-digit scorers for Delaware up to this point in the season, with Nelson Jr. logging 4.7 RPG and a team-high 2.3 APG while Davis has 4 RPG as well. Christian Ray also has a team-high 10 RPG to lead Delaware in rebounding up to this point in the season. As a team, Delaware is averaging 69 PPG on 39.9% shooting from the field, 29.2% from three and 69.6% from the foul line this season.

Colgate is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a win while the under is 7-2 in their last 9 games following an ATS win. Delaware is 15-7 ATS in their last 22 neutral site games and 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss.

I give Delaware some credit as they usually take on a couple of tough opponents year in and year out, but the Blue Hens normally come up short. The difference here is that Colgate is good enough to take down the big boys, just ask Syracuse. I think the Raiders are just the better team here so I’ll back the Raiders in this spot.

Chris Ruffolo's Free Pick:
