ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll stick with Robert Morris here. The Colonials need a good bounce-back effort after their Thursday loss at Indiana Farmers Coliseum, though. Robert Morris had a four-game win streak going prior to that, and they’ve hit 71 or more points in five straight outings. The Colonials beat IUPUI 77-70 the first time they met this season back on January 9, and I think this third installment will go more in Robert Morris’ direction. IUPUI has improved over the last handful of games however, so the Jaguars could throw a wrench into the plans if they play well.
