The #8 vs #9 games are supposed to be the most evenly matched and I think this one qualifies as such. I like both of these teams and whoever wins could be a threat beyond too.
At their best we have seen the Wolfpack knock off some of the best teams in the ACC, but Seton Hall has probably been the more consistent group overall.
NC State Wolfpack
All season long I have liked this Wolfpack team but losing to Boston College in the ACC Tournament has not inspired a lot of confidence.
The reason I like them so much is not only that they are talented but they can play a number of different ways. They can pound you inside and bomb away from deep.
Omer Yurtseven is a legit 7 footer with a nice inside offensive game. He is not active on the glass or on defense the way I would like but he can dominate scoring the ball.
On the perimeter I like the combo of Allerik Freeman, Braxton Beverly and Torin Dorn. They have a nice combo of experience, athleticism and shooting and each do different things well.
Seton Hall Pirates
Seton Hall lost by a point to Butler in the Big East Tournament. That had to have some Pirates fans concerned but here they are in the Big Dance and they have a shot to make some noise.
This team profiles well, even if their seed line will make it challenging. They are very experienced and used to big time competition. Though this group has come up short in the Tournament in the past.
Key to any winning effort will be the return to form of Desi Rodriguez. He missed a couple of weeks of action and did not look totally right in the loss to Butler.
Angel Delgado will make sure the Pirates do not get pushed around on the boards. Fellow senior Kadeem Carrington can run the point and score but the team is probably best when he is in a complimentary role.

Free NC State Wolfpack vs. Seton Hall Pirates NCAAB Prediction:
Small spread here for a game I would call a coin flip. Neither team has a particular advantage the other can’t handle.
Seton Hall has to feel some extra pressure due to recent lack of results and graduating class, plus they are the favourite.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: NC State +2.5
Hopefully this line moves a little in our direction. I like NC State coach Kevin Keats a lot in underdog roles. He got his UNCW teams to compete well in the tourney too.
