PICK: I’ll probably stay with Furman. The Paladins are coming off a tough loss to a good High Point team. Furman played pretty well in that one though, with 45.7 percent from the field. That said, the Paladins also allowed 59.3 percent shooting on the other side and got out-rebounded 34-29. The good news is that this shouldn’t be quite so difficult a matchup for Furman—on paper at least. Winthrop has scored 81 or more points in four straight games though, so this one could be a shootout.
