Eastern Kentucky Colonels
Eastern Kentucky has not been dreadful this year, but they have yet to play very consistently. I am not all that confident that it will get better as the year goes on.
The Colonels dropped to the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers on Saturday by a score of 85-80. Things will get much harder for them when they go on the road to take on a very good USC team.
This squad has really not played anyone all that great, which is why their record is a bit concerning. Truthfully, they should be playing more teams at the Caliber of USC because it can show them what real competition is all about.
The offense was certainly not the issue in the loss to Western Kentucky. The defense just has no answers for what the Hilltoppers wanted to do. I have no clue how this defense plans on shutting down a potent offense in USC.
USC has certainly looked the part in the early going. I really like what I am seeing from this crew. It makes you want to see more, frankly.
The Trojans come into this contest with a record of 8-0. They have played some cupcake teams, but they have also played some legit competition as well. I feel this squad could compete with a large majority of the top teams in the nation.
This team beat the Washington State Cougars on Saturday by a score of 63-61. Those are very important games to win because it was not done in blowout fashion. Sometimes you have to figure out ways to pick up close wins on the road.
The leading scorer in the win over the Cougars was Chevez Goodwin, who had 14 points and 5 rebounds. Drew Peterson also chipped in 13 points and 6 boards.

Free Eastern Kentucky Colonels vs. USC Trojans NCAAB Prediction:
USC should be able to keep up their good play in this one and I expect them to do so. There is no excuse for them not to do so.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: USC ATS
These are the types of teams that the Trojans cannot even fool around with. They need to play them and take care of their business.
I have a hard time seeing the Colonels making this thing all that competitive. I just do not feel that they have the talent to play with USC for a whole game.
In this spot, I like the Trojans to cover. I can see them getting a big lead and not letting up. Sure, 17 is a high number, but I like it here.
Give me the Trojans laying points at home here.
