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…

Pick:
South Florida 0

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
