ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll probably stick with Coastal Carolina here. I could probably go either way, though; these teams have been on very similar courses this year and I expect this one to be close. In any case, Coastal Carolina is flailing on this seven-game losing streak but there’s not all bad news. The Chanticleers have scored 66 or more points in 10 of their last 12 games and should be able to put up a decent number here. The last time these teams met up back on January 14, Georgia State posted a dominant 100-66 win at home. Coastal Carolina will have to play great basketball in order to get some revenge but I think they can do it with the home advantage.
