PICK: I’m going to stay with Charleston in this one. The Cougars had a very close call against a decent Towson team in their last outing. Charleston is doing pretty well overall during this 13-game win streak though—outside of a few close calls here and there. The Cougars have scored 65 or more points in every game this year and shouldn’t have too much trouble posting points in this one. I don’t think the Aggies will keep up if the Cougars get going.
