Randy’s Free Pick

The UMass Minutemen are in rough shape over the last week, they don’t win on the road, and they’re banged up, which includes an injury to their best player in Fernandes. Saint Joseph’s is playing the better ball right now and is at home, where it wins by an average of 6.5 points. Give me the healthier team at home. I’ll lay the bucket with the Hawks.

Randy Chambers's Free Pick: Saint Joseph's Hawks -1.5
