In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Temple at Belmont.
The Temple Owls will enter the March Madness after winning 8 of their last 11 games. The team is averaging 74.8 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 71.2 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Shizz Alton is the leading scorer of the team with 19.7 points per game while Quinton Rose is adding 16.5 points and 3.8 rebounds. The Owls are a decent 3-point shooting team, averaging 33% from beyond the arc.
Even though the Belmont Bruins lost the OVC Championship, this was just their second loss since January the 5th. The Belmont Bruins are averaging 86.9 points on 49.7 percent shooting and allowing 74.7 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Dylan Windler is the team’s leading scorer with 21.4 points and he is also adding 10.7 rebounds per game. Kevin McClain is the second leading scorer with 16.3 points and 4.1 assists.
The Belmont Bruins may be the best offensive team in this tournament. The problem with them is that they can’t defend at all. The Temple Owls are the opposite. They can defend the three well and they are a defensive-minded squad that scores just enough to win games. Belmont is the better team away from home and given the fact that Temple can’t keep up with the scoring pace, I expect the Bruins to cover the spread.
