PICK: I’m going to try St. Francis PA here, but probably not going near it. There’s not a lot to get excited about in this game, but it should at least be a competitive matchup. The last time these teams met up back on New Year’s Eve, the Knights pulled off a 70-62 win. St. Francis PA has had a little more success in the win column since then but neither team has done well. I like the Flash to pull it together in this rematch and power out a revenge cover.
