The Richmond Spiders need to get their offense in order before they can be trust in spots like this. While the Toledo Rockets have their issues, their offense is on a heater, and they have a handful of players shooting high percentages across the board. I question if Richmond has the horses to hang here for 40 minutes. Give me Toledo and the reasonable number.
