American played three big program, major conference opponents in its non-conference this season: West Virginia, Kansas State and Marquette, all three on the road. It came away from those three games down 113 points, put together.
The Eagles have two other double-digit defeats and Bucknell is better than either of those two other opponents that put the hurt on American.
American boasts a pair of 18 point per game scorers in Sa’eed Nelson and Larry Motuzis. Nelson led the team in scoring last year; Motuzis is a junior transfer who sat out all of last season after making the jump from Saint Xavier of the NAIA.
This is a bottom-50 KenPom team, coming in at #312.
Bucknell, meanwhile, cracks the top-100 and is one of the strongest mid-majors in the nation once again. It is the odds-on favorite to win the Patriot League and repeat as conference champion.
It’s offense is undeniable, cracking the top-50 according to those same KenPom metrics. Zach Thomas was the best player in the Patriot League as a junior and he’s back in his senior year and averaging over 22 points per game. Nana Foulland is averaging nearly 17 points per game on over 60 percent from the field.
Those two seniors have Bison fans thinking that this could be one of the best teams in what has been a prosperous 21st century.
But the Bison actually have a losing record at the moment. It played nine of its first dozen games on the road against a variety of legitimate big-time D-I programs. Bucknell finished with wins at Richmond and versus La Salle but neither of those wins are particularly impressive (La Salle is in the 140s on KenPom, Richmond is much worse). Its best win actually came in Lewisburg against Vermont, which is #75 in the rankings I’ve been citing this whole time.
CBB Betting Trends:
- BUCK are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
- Over is 8-2-1 in BUCK last 11 overall.
Free American vs. Bucknell NCAAB Prediction: Bucknell wins, but how big?
Watch this team come into its own in the conference and round into an NCAA Tournament threat. Bucknell will win this game; I’m only hesitant as to whether it will be a blowout or not.
