The Owls were not much of a player in the Sun Belt and they haven’t suddenly become a hoops force in Conference USA either. The best they can hope for a strong performance as they close their season.
Marshall is an interesting team to consider heading into the tournament. They get an easy draw to start and if it lets them feel good about their shooting they can beat anyone.
Florida is pretty nondescript on the basketball court. They won two of their final five games which sort of counts as a good run for this group.
This program has no stars, in fact nobody plays more than 27 minutes per game. They go ten deep but it is the eye of the beholder what that is an indicator or.
Adonis Filer is the leading scorer at just 11ppg. He started his career at Clemson but never really fit in. He is a bit player on a decent team but on this team they need him even though he is not a good shooter.
Center Ronald Delph is another transfer – Auburn. In terms of physicality he looks good but is not highly productive. His numbers are down from a year ago but he is a presence.
Marshall Thundering Herd
Marshall is definitely a wild card heading into the Conference USA tournament. Winning big at this time of the season is about getting hot at the right moment. If they do they are very dangerous the way they play.
That way is to score, score and score some more. They are 6th in the nation scoring 86ppg and give up almost as much at 85ppg allowed. They are not particularly skilled but they are definitely not shy.
The backcourt of Jon Elmore and Stevie Browning averages 35ppg. Both can score from range and both make their free throws. I would expect them to play even more than normal in the tournament.
Ryan Taylor may only be 6’5″ but he thinks every rebound is his. He is a classic undersized 4 in this system and they need him to clean up the glass. He and 6’7″ Terrence Thompson are going to have to play big this week.

Free FAU Owls vs. Marshall Thundering Herd NCAAB Prediction:
The Owls are not good but perhaps they are playing better than expected. You would not expect a team that profiles like they do to have a 9-4 ATS record on the road.
Marshall looks like a steal to me at -6. As long as they do not take too long to find their rhythm. Odds are you are not going to have to sweat this one.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Marshall -6
This number seems off to me. FAU would have to really pick things up unless Marshall lays a stinker.
