ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll probably stay with Tennessee Tech. The last time these teams met up back on January 19 at Jack Stephens Center, the Eagles eked out a 77-75 win. Tennessee Tech didn’t have a great second half in that one but pulled out the win. The Eagles are currently on a 6-1 run, and I like them to keep it going here. Little Rock should be able to hang around for much of the game if they play well, but I don’t think the Trojans will keep the cover pace the whole way.
