Sam Houston State vs. Louisiana Tech Prediction

I’m taking Sam Houston State and the points here. Both of these teams are solid offensively and do a lot of things well on the defensive end of the floor. This to me is just shaping up to be a close game that comes down to the wire, so I’ll take the points with the Bearkats in a game that I think comes down to the last shot.
