The South Florida Bulls host the Depaul Blue Demons in the opener of the CBI college basketball finals.
The DePaul Blue Demons outscored the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers 92-87 in the CBI semifinals as an eight point favorite.
The duo of Paul Reed and Max Strus were a force with 24 points apiece and a combined eleven rebounds while Femi Olujobi added 18 points and eight boards.
Eli Cain gave DePaul 12 points and five pulls followed by Jaylen Butz with eleven points and four yanks as the offense had explosiveness and balance.
The South Florida Bulls rode their defense and foul shooting to a 56-47 victory against Loyola Marymount as a 4.5 point favorite to advance to the CBI semifinals.
Alexis Yetna carried South Florida with eleven points and a contest high eleven rebounds with David Collins tossing in another eleven points with three steals.
The Bulls received nine points, four pulls and four assists from Laquincy Rideau while Michael Durr chipped in with six points, nine rebounds and two blocks.
DePaul Blue Demons are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and are 3-14-1 ATS in their last 18 Monday games and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games.
South Florida Bulls are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games and are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 vs. Big East and are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall.
Favorite is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings and over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in South Florida and DePaul Blue Demons are 0-8 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
South Florida has certainly been improved although the team wasn’t great in the final weeks of the AAC. The Bulls are a solid home team and I look for them to take advantage in the CBI opener…
