These two teams come into this matchup heading in different directions, as Charleston is at the top of the CAA standings and William & Mary is towards the bottom. The Cougars are 10-3 in conference play and they do score over 80 points per game, but they don’t shoot the ball very well. William & Mary is 3-10 in the CAA and they are only shooting 41.5% from the field. Charleston did win the first meeting between these two teams, but it was a close game, winning by a score of 84-83. I do think Charleston will win this game, but I am going to take the points with the Tribe here.
