East Carolina Pirates
The East Carolina Pirates have had a disappointing season but hope to finish the season strong by having a nice showing in the AAC tournament.
The Pirates come into this game with a 15-17 record and finished the regular season in 9th place in the AAC. They beat Temple in their first game of the AAC tournament by a final of 80-69.
The Pirates like to play a slow pace of game, but sometimes have problems scoring. They only average 62.8 points per game well shooting 39.8 percent from the field which is one of the worst in the country.
That is not a good combination to have going against an SMU Mustangs team that can really shut people down on the defensive side of the floor.
The SMU Mustangs have had a great season so far and look like they could make a lot of noise in the NCAA tournament when that rolls around.
Right now they are just playing for seeding as they are a lock to get in.
They come into this game with a 27-4 record and finished the regular season in first place in the AAC. They haven’t lost a game since January 15th rattling off 13 straight games.
The Mustangs strength is on the defensive side of the floor. They only give up 59.4 points per game and opponents shoot less than 39 percent from the field.
For the Mustangs to win this game they just need to play their game. They are the better team and as long as they come out hard they should blow out the Pirates.
