Longwood vs UNC Asheville Betting Prediction

UNC Asheville finished the regular season as the second best team in the Big South and they are one game away from heading back to the NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs are scoring 79.4 points per game, but their defense has been an issue. Longwood was only 6-10 in conference play this year, but they are coming off of a win over the #1 seed in their last game. The Lancers are a much better defensive team than UNCA, but they will have their hands full here. UNC Asheville defeated Longwood by a score of 65-61, while Longwood won the second meeting by a score of 80-75. I really like Drew Pember on UNCA and I think he is going to be the difference. Take the Bulldogs to win.
