Who knows what is going on with UConn from game to game. They are definitely talented but the results have been hard to get for Kevin Ollie’s club this season. A bit hard to explain too.
It is easy to explain what is going on at ECU…they just aren’t very good. They are not quite epically bad but close to the bottom in a league that does not run very deep.
I guess you have to say that the Huskies team is enigmatic. At times they play to their talent and look like they could be tournament worthy but the only way they are going to get that chance is if they go on a crazy run like they did the last time they won the title.
Jalen Adams is a talent but he has not dominated the way that UConn lead guards have in the past. He might match the aggressiveness of Kemba and Shabazz but definitely not their sense of game timing
Rodney Purvis has struggled to match his game to Adams as a result. For a senior guard that has seen and done a lot he has been a big disappointment this season. His shooting percentages are way down.
With Amida Brimah protecting the rim the Huskies can be an elite defensive team. They won’t need to be to get this win but perhaps that is what reveals itself if the program catches fire.
East Carolina Pirates
The Pirates may be plucky on the gridiron but despite their Carolina location there is not much to the program in terms of hoops. Only twice have they made the Tournament and they have not had a winning record in three season in the AAC.
Kentrell Barkley is the top Pirate, leading the team in scoring and rebounding from the shooting guard position. His numbers are up from a year ago but his efficiency is down.
The top five scorers on the team are listed as guard and not one of them shoots as well as even 40% from the field. That is a lot of misses. Especially disappointing has been the play of B.J. Tyson. His scoring is down 4 points this season and he has not cracked 10 points in the last seven games.
Andre Washington can see eye to eye with Brima and has a similar profile as a shot blocker and rebounder. They do not give him many chances to score but it makes for an interesting matchup.

Free Connecticut Huskies vs. East Carolina Pirates NCAAB Prediction:
UConn has talent and they have crushed bettors overall this season. The numbers are slightly better on the road with a 6-5 ATS record despite going 4-7 SU.
East Carolina is not a good team but I guess they are better than people think because they are 6-3 ATS at home this season. Last home game of the year can have some value too.

Look for the way more public UConn to be favoured even on the road in this spot.
