The Saint Joseph’s Hawks and Dayton Flyers meet Thursday in the college basketball Atlantic 10 Tournament Quarterfinal at the Barclays Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Saint Joseph’s Hawks are averaging 72.5 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 72.9 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Erik Reynolds II is averaging 19.2 points and 3 rebounds, while Cameron Brown is averaging 13.4 points and 5.9 rebounds. Lynn Greer II is the third double-digit scorer and Kacper Klaczek is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. The Saint Joseph’s Hawks are shooting 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 68.9 percent from the free throw line. The Saint Joseph’s Hawks are allowing 35 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.6 rebounds per game.

The Dayton Flyers are averaging 69 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 60.8 points on 39.2 percent shooting. DaRon Holmes II is averaging 18 points and 7.9 rebounds, while Toumani Camara is averaging 13.6 points and 1.7 assists. Kobe Elvis is dishing 2.9 assists and Mustapha Amzil is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Dayton Flyers are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 69 percent from the free throw line. The Dayton Flyers are allowing 28.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.8 rebounds per game.

The Hawks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Flyers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Hawks last 6 overall. The under is 7-1 in Flyers last 8 overall.

The Dayton Flyers should be obvious favorites, as they were the better team this season, and they’re playing a team that’s playing its third game in as many days. The Saint Joseph’s Hawks could easily gas out and roll over. However, Saint Joseph’s has won back to back tournament games as underdogs and the confidence has to be building. There are a lot of upperclassmen on this roster and two seniors. I’ll take a stab with the double-digit points.
