Stetson Preview

The Stetson Hatters are 22-12 (11-5) this year after they defeated Austin Peay by a score of 94-91 in the ASUN Title game. Stetson has won nine of their last 11 games and they have scored at least 83 points in seven of those games. The Hatters finished conference play with an 11-5 record, which was tied for second place. Stetson’s best wins came against UCF and Charlotte, but they did play UNLV and Houston as well. The Hatters are scoring 77.5 points per game with 34.5 rebounds per game and 13.5 assists per game, while allowing 72.8 points against per game this year. Jalen Blackmon is averaging 21.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game. Stetson is shooting 46.7% from the field, 76.6% on free throws, and 37% on three pointers this season. 

UConn Preview

The UConn Huskies are 31-3 (18-2) this season after they defeated Marquette by a score of 73-57 to win the Big East Tournament. UConn has won seven games in a row and 21 of their last 22 games. The Huskies have been dominant this season, picking up losses to only Creighton, Seton Hall, and Kansas. UConn has quality non-conference wins against Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, and Gonzaga. The Huskies are scoring 81.5 points per game with 38.5 rebounds per game and 18.5 assists per game, while giving up 64.4 points against per game this season. Tristen Newton is averaging 15.2 points per game, 7.0 rebounds per game, and 6.0 assists per game. UConn is shooting 49.6% from the field, 74.2% on free throws, and 36.7% on three pointers this year. 

Stetson vs UConn Betting Prediction

UConn comes into this Tournament as the overall number one seed and they have been the best team in the country so far this year. The Huskies are great on both ends of the court and it’s going to be a tall task to knock them out of this tournament. Stetson finished second in the ASUN regular season standings, but they were able to win the tournament and will now try to keep this game competitive. Stetson put up some decent offensive numbers this year, but UConn should shred their defense. This is a big number to cover, especially in the Tournament, but I think the only play here is to take UConn and hope they don’t take their foot off of the gas too early. Take the Huskies here. It would be shocking if UConn doesn’t go through and face Northwestern or FAU in the next round.
