High Point vs. Longwood Prediction

I’m on High Point here. I think the loss to Longwood at the end of the season was a bit of a throwaway as High Point knew they were going to be the top seed regardless of what transpired and Longwood needed that game more, but the Panthers are the better team without question and beat Longwood by 17 in the other meeting this season, putting up 93 on the Lancers in that game. I’m not sure this one’s as one-sided, but I do think High Point takes care of business to advance to the title game. Give me High Point.
