Appalachian State Mountaineers
Appalachian State isn’t on many people’s radars. The Mountaineers are 217th at KenPom and have a losing record, despite starting the Sun Belt Conference with two wins.
They topped both Texas State and Texas Arlington by four points in each game, both at home.
Ronshad Shabazz is the bucket-getter worthy of his name on this team. He averages nearly 21 points per game on a high volume 43.7 percent from the field and 35.5 percent from three. Freshman guard Justin Forrest scores over 15 points per on similar efficiency.
Fifteen turnovers as a team are too many per game. Ultimately, that will cost them on the road.
UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns
UL Lafayette is on some national radars, however. The Ragin’ Cajuns are in the top-100 at KenPom and are the favorites to win the Sun Belt Conference this season, which would send them back to the NCAAs for the first time since 2005 and just the third time in the school’s history.
The Cajuns started the conference 2–0 but have some big losses against non-conference opponents of Tournament quality. They lost by 18 at Ole Miss and 29 at Clemson. They also lost to Wyoming.
A pair of 15.9 points per game scorers lead the offense that shoots 48 percent from the field as a team and nearly 36 percent from three. That offense is #54 at KenPom. Keep an eye on the Cajuns for the brackets in a few months.
