Joe D'Amico's NCAAB NIT Tourney Game of the Year
Nevada vs. Oral Roberts,
03/14/2012 21:15 EDT,
Score: 68 - 59
Point Spread: +6/-105 Nevada
Today's winner is Nevada over Oral Roberts. This is my NIT Tournament Game of the Year.
Nevada faces a much higher level of opposition than does Oral Roberts. The back court tandem of Deonte Burton and Malik Story (29.1 PPG combined) will exploit ORU's defense while 6'8" Jerry Evans Jr. will slow down the smaller Golden Eagles, Dominique Morrison. Nevada just plain old outclasses Oral Roberts here. The Wolf Pack are 7-0 ATS their L7 games played as a 'dog, 10-2 ATS their L12 games played on the road, and 22-8 ATS their L30 non-Conference games. The Golden Eagles are 1-7 ATS their L8 games played as a favorite, 1-5 ATS their L6 games played at home, and 1-6 ATS their L7 games played overall. Take Nevada. Thank you.
