The round of 64 continues on Friday. One of the afternoon games is a 6/11 match up between the Creighton Bluejays and the Rhode Island Rams.
On paper these two teams couldn’t be any different. This is the first time these two teams played since 2008 when Creighton won by one.
Rhode Island Rams
The Rhode Island Rams used a strong surge at the end of the season to get an NCAA Tournament berth.
They had players injured most of the year, but when they got everyone healthy they looked like a team that could make some noise come NCAA Tournament time.
The Rams strength is on the defensive side of the ball. They only give up 64.9 points per game and opponents shoot 40.4 percent from the field. To win this game they need to play exceptional defense.
The Bluejays can really light up the scoreboard and they need to try to slow that down.
The Creighton Bluejays season has been a story of two different seasons, before Maurice Watson got hurt, and the season after he got hurt.
Before he got hurt they were playing for a very high seed in the NCAA Tournament.
After he got hurt however people wondered if they would even make the NCAA Tournament.
Over the last five Creighton has only averaged 73 points per game which is down from their season average of 81.
To win this game they need to be better on that side of the ball, or it will be another first round exit for the Bluejays.

Free Rhode Island Rams vs. Creighton Bluejays NCAAB Prediction:
This game seems to be a pretty popular upset pick among the experts and I agree. Rhode Island has had some impressive wins this season and Creighton seems to be limping into this game.
I think the Rams win by playing good defense and making key shots down the stretch.
