I'm assuming we're going to get a decent amount of points with the Radford Highlanders, and I want them. Radford beat Marshall on a neutral court and gave UNC a run where it trailed by just 5 points at halftime. VCU lost its opening game to McNeese and just doesn't pack the scoring punch needed to really blow teams out. The Radford Highlanders won't be intimated of the moment given what it's done through 3 games. Give me Radford and all the points I can get.
