Team Reviews

UAB Blazers (23-11)

The UAB Blazers had a solid season in the American Athletic Conference, finishing with a commendable 23-11 record. Led by Y. Lendeborg, who averages 13.9 points and 10.7 rebounds per game, the Blazers have shown their ability to compete against top competition.

San Diego State Aztecs (24-10)

The San Diego State Aztecs had a respectable season in the Mountain West Conference, finishing with a solid 24-10 record. Led by J. LeDee, who averages an impressive 21.1 points per game, the Aztecs have the offensive firepower to compete with any team.

However, the Aztecs have struggled in their recent outings, suffering losses to UNM and UNLV. With some inconsistency in their performances, they face a tough challenge against a motivated UAB team.

 

Prediction

Expect the UAB Blazers to cover the +6.5 points spread in this matchup. Here's why:

Despite being the underdog, UAB comes into this game with confidence and momentum, having performed well in their recent matchups. With Y. Lendeborg leading the charge, they have the ability to keep the game competitive and potentially pull off an upset.

On the other hand, San Diego State has struggled in their recent games, showing signs of vulnerability on both ends of the floor. With their inconsistent performances, they may struggle to maintain a significant lead against a determined UAB team.

Furthermore, UAB's strong defense could pose problems for the Aztecs' offense, potentially limiting their scoring opportunities and keeping the game close throughout.

Considering San Diego State's recent struggles and UAB's momentum, expect the Blazers to cover the spread and potentially challenge for the win in what promises to be a closely contested matchup.

 

Pick: UAB Blazers +6.5
