I get the case to be made for ODU here as they looked really good against the Pirates, but the Charleston Cougars are a team I’m really high on and are a team that looks to be flying under the radar ever so slightly right now. This is a Charleston team that can go with some of the better teams in the country and I’m not sure that’s something I can say for Old Dominion. I think Charleston runs away with this one, so give me the Cougars here.
