Defensively, neither team has been particularly dominant, which could lead to an open and high-scoring affair. Both teams have shown vulnerabilities in their defense throughout the season, which bodes well for a high-scoring game.

Furthermore, with the stakes high in the NIT Quarterfinal, both teams will be motivated to push the pace and capitalize on offensive possessions. Look for fast breaks, transition buckets, and efficient shooting to contribute to the total score surpassing 150.5 points.
