North Florida had a tough matchup versus Gonzaga in their opener and ended up falling 104-63. The Ospreys took on Washington in game two and lost 75-67, but then North Florida got a win over SC State 72-66. 

In game four against Duquesne on Monday, the Ospreys took a difficult loss. North Florida was up 43-42 by halftime but ended up falling 83-82. Tops in scoring was Jarius Hicklen with 24 points, and Carter Hendricksen scored 14 points.

Over on the Kentucky side, it’s been an eventful season already. The Wildcats beat Howard 95-63 in their opener then took out Duquesne 77-52. After a loss to Michigan State 86-77, Kentucky beat South Carolina State 106-63. 

On Sunday versus Gonzaga, Kentucky faced a 41-25 deficit going into the break. The Wildcats kept the pace from there but still lost 88-72. Oscar Tshiebwe led the team on 20 points and 15 rebounds. Jacob Toppin added 16 points as well. 

PICK: I’m going to stay with Kentucky. Probably not going near it, though. The Wildcats have had to face two very tough teams in their losses, and Kentucky didn’t play very well in either one of them. The Wildcats shot 39.1 percent from the floor versus Gonzaga and faced a 39-29 rebounding deficit. The good news here is that Kentucky should be able to handle North Florida with ease and I don’t think they’ll have too many issues posting a blowout win.
