Score: 64 - 70
Point Spread: -5/-102 Kansas State
Today's winner is Kansas State over Southern Mississippi. This is my Syndicate winner.
Kansas State has reached the NCAA Tournament for the 3rd straight year by boasting a 21-10 SU record and beating three top-10 teams. Oh by the way, K State is 3-0 SU in NCAA Tourney first-round games under HC, Frank martin. This is a squad that is a monster on the glass and holds opponents to 63.7 PPG on "D". By far, the most talented player on the floor is Rodney McGruder. The Guard averages 15.4 PPG and 5.3 RPG. The trio of Forwards, Samuels, Henriquez,, and Gipson are combining for 24.5 PPG and 16.5 RPG. This is a talented unit that will come into this contest looking to make a point after dropping their last game to Baylor. They face a Southern Miss team that only had 8 losses but all were either on the road or at neutral sites. The Golden Eagles split out their L10 games, going 1-9 ATS. Let's face it, when your leading scorer posts just 12.2 PPG, that doesn't bode well. Injuries and a lack of presence on the boards have crushed Southern Mississippi. Take Kansas State. Thank you.
