Longwood vs. High Point Prediction

I’m on High Point here. The Panthers are simply the better team playing far better basketball and I’m just not sure I’m getting nearly enough points to consider Longwood here. The Lancers have the best defense in the conference but the worst offense and at a certain point you have to be able to outscore the other team. I’ll side with High Point in this one.
