Morehead State Eagles
The Eagles had a nice season but when you are in a conference with the likes of Belmont and Murray State it is hard to stand out. The finished second behind the Bruins in the Ohio Valley East Division.
To make it to the finals of the CBI they have beaten Siena, Duquesne and Ohio, winning twice on the road and covering all three times. They are on a roll and taking the first game of this three game series at home is critical.
The Eagles are definitely a defensive minded squad. They are 76th in the nation giving up just 68ppg. They have not been as tight in the postseason though and you have to wonder if they can keep up their scoring.
They have no big time players but their top scorer Corban Collins started his career at LSU before finding a home at Kentucky. He has a habit of coming up big in big game like scoring 20 at Belmont to keep the Eagles close.
Back in the old WAC days the Wolfpack were often in the NCAA Tournament. They are still a solid program in the Mountain West but not as feared as they were a while back. The finished fourth this season.
To get to this point in the CBI they have beaten Montana, Eastern Washington and Vermont.
The key thing about all of those games is that they were played at home. This is not a good road team but that is where the series starts.
Nevada has a balanced lineup with four regulars scoring between 12 and 16ppg. PG Marqueze Coleman leads the way but he is a very streak shooter. He is miscast in the role but has good size at 6’4″
The Wolfpack have a quality inside player in Cameron Oliver. He averages 13 and 9 and can make the occasional three. Just a freshman he has finished strong, 4 double-doubles in his last five games.

Free Morehead State Eagles vs. Nevada Wolfpack CBB Prediction:
The Eagles should be highly motivated in this one. The CBI is a bigger deal to them and in this rare best of three set this is the only home game. If they don’t take this one they don’t stand much of a chance.
Nevada on the other hand has to be looking at this as a springboard to better days in the future. There are no dynasties in the MWC. No reason they can’t be a power there.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Nevada ATS.
I have to admit I do not know a ton about either of these teams. The Nevada brand is much stronger in my mind so that is the way I am leaning but starting a series on the road is tough.
This game will be determined by whoever starts best. The Wolfpack are not that much more talented to play catchup in someone else’s barn.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: Nevada 74 – Morehead State 66
Look for the Wolfpack to take the opener on the way to a series sweep. At least there is some meaningful hoops to watch on Monday night.
