UConn may be favored to win at home here.
Seton Hall Pirates
After storming out to a 9-1 start, Seton Hall has dropped four of their first six Big East games. The Pirates ripped off a quick three-game winning streak, before losing, but covering on the road against Villanova, 73-67.
Seton Hall scores a solid 75.4 points per game, but they’ve struggled to knock down the three ball.
Jared Rhoden is thriving as the role as senior leader. The 6’6 swingman scored a season-high 25 points in the home over Xavier last week, and he’s got four double-doubles on the season. Rhoden leads SHU with 15.4 points per game and he grabs 6.8 rpg.
Bryce Aiken has brought more than book smarts over from Harvard, but his season-ending injury has left a gap offensively. The 6′ guard scored a season-high 28 points against Marquette in his last game, and he was second on the team in scoring (14.5)
Myles Cale returned for a fifth season and he remains a key part of what the Pirates do. The 6’6 senior is a true glue guy, and he’s stepped up in Aiken’s absence. Cale scores 9.8 ppg, while grabbing 3.7 rpg.
USF transfer Alexis Yetna had a monster game against the Golden Eagles, going for 15 points and 16 boards. The 6’8 frenchman leads the Pirates in rebounding (7.8), while scoring 9.1 ppg.
Kadary Richmond, a Syracuse transfer, joins Aiken in the backcourt. The 6’6 guard scored a career-high 27 points in the first over UConn, and he’s averaging a solid 8.9 ppg, 4.0 rpg, and 4.1 apg.
UConn enjoyed a strong start to the season, picking up notable non-conference wins over VCU, Auburn, and St. Bonaventure. The Huskies were riding a five-game winning streak heading into February, and they picked up a road win over St. John’s las time out, 63-60..
Dan Hurley’s unit is one of highest scoring offenses (77.6 ppg), and strongest rebounding (41.2 rpg) squads in the nation.
R.J. Cole leads the team in scoring after getting off to a hot start. The 6’2 guard scored 26 points against VCU, and he’s leading the team in scoring (16.2) and assists (4.5)
Strong rebounding guards Tyrese Martin and Andre Jackson join him in the backcourt, both averaging 6.5 and 7.7 rpg respectively. Jackson grabbed a career-high 16 boards in the win over St. John’s last time out.
Adama Sanogo is really coming into his own this season. The 6’10 sophomore has been dominant, and he posted a remarkable 24/15 line in the win over Marquette last week. Sanogo scores 14.9 ppg, while leading the team in rebounding (8.2).
Longtime Husky Isaiah Whaley remains in the fold, and the fifth-year senior is averaging 7.5 ppg and 5.1 rpg.
CBB Betting Trends:
- MARQ is 8-4 ATS in their last 12 road games.
- UConn are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games.
- Over is 5-2 in Huskies last last seven games.
Free Seton Hall Pirates vs. UConn Huskies NCAAB Prediction: CONN to Cover
UConn is in a good spot to seek out some revenge.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UConn +6.5
The Pirates have somewhat adapted to life without Bryce Aiken, but his 22 points and seven assists from the overtime win over UConn will surely be missed here. This marks the start of a vital three-game home stretch for the Huskies, so should see a sense of urgency from Dan Hurley’s team here. Playing in the historic Gampel Pavilion (vs. the on-campus arena in Hartford) in primetime may also give the home team an added boost.
Take UConn’s spread for what should be a white-out Wednesday evening.
