NCAA Men’s Basketball: The Spiders remain undefeated?
The Richmond Spiders are a veteran team that know how to win games. That is the reason they are still undefeated. Their defense has been stellar all season, with teams averaging under 65 points while facing them. While the Mountaineers may not be as defensive adept as the Spiders, they also have a fair share of stoppers on their team.
The Mountaineers will line up with Oscar Tshiebwe, Gabe Osabuohein, Derek Culver, Sean McNeil, and Taz Sherman. The Spiders will take the court with Tyler Burton, Jacob Gilyard, Grant Golden, Nathan Cayo, and Blake Francis.
If crowds were around, we would have gone with the Mountaineers. Their home arena can be a daunting challenge for teams on the road. However, considering there are no fans and how the season has played out, a veteran team like the Spiders will be our pick. Their cohesive team play and winning mentality may tilt this game in their favor.
