The St. Francis BK Terriers and the Miami Hurricanes meet in college basketball action from the Watsco Center on Wednesday.

The St. Francis BK Terriers will be out to build on their 61-58 win over Saint Peter’s last time out. Zion Bethea leads the Terriers in scoring with 11.5 PPG while Josiah Harris has 10 PPG and a team-high 10.2 RPG to lead the Terriers on the glass as the only other double-digit scorer for St. Francis BK so far this season. Larry Moreno has 9.8 PPG while Rob Higgins has a team-high 3.8 APG to lead the Terriers in assists this season. As a team, St. Francis is averaging 64.8 PPG on 41.8% shooting from the field, 28.2% from three and 66.1% from the foul line this season.

The Miami Hurricanes will look to rebound from an 88-70 loss to Maryland last time out. Isaiah Wong leads the Hurricanes in scoring and assists with 15.2 PPG and 4 APG while Jordan Miller has 14.8 PPG with 7 RPG. Norchad Omier has 14.2 PPG with a team-high 10.2 RPG to lead the Hurricanes on the glass by averaging a double-double per game and Nijel Pack has 10.4 PPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Miami so far this season. As a team, Miami is averaging 75.4 PPG on 46.3% shooting from the field, 33.3% from three and 74% from the foul line this season.

St. Francis BK is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games overall. Miami is 4-1 ATs in their last 5 Wednesday games and 4-0 ATs in their last 4 games following a loss while the over is 11-1 in their last 12 home games against a team with a losing road record.

I get the case to be made for either side in this game, but even though it’s a bit number, I’m looking at Miami here. There is just a considerable talent gap between St. Francis and Miami and I just don’t see the Terriers having enough in the tank to counter that gap. I think the Hurricanes win this one by 35+, so give me Miami in this spot.
