After a long and grueling tournament we have finally reached the final of the Collegeinsider.com tournament, or the CIT. St. Peter’s Peacocks travel to Texas to take on the Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders.
On paper these are two teams who are very different, so it should make for a very interesting game. These two teams have not met up in recent history.
St. Peter’s Peacocks
After two very close games to start the tournament the St. Peter’s Peacocks had a dominating win in their semi final game.
They actually played kind of out of character and put up 77 points, which was one of their highest scoring games of the season. They were led by a very balanced attack. They had four players who scored 11 or more points to pace the Peacocks.
Although that was a good offensive game for the Peacocks, their strength is on the defensive side of the floor. They only give up 60.8 points per game which is fourth best in the country. To win this game it’s all going to come down to the defensive side of the floor.
The Islanders can put up a lot of points in a hurry so the Peacocks should really try and slow the pace down in this game. The lower the scoring the game is the better the chance they will be crowned the CIT tournament champions.
Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders
The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders season as been a tail of two seasons. They really struggled in non conference play, but flourished in conference play, and have continued to flourish in this tournament.
They come into this game having won four in a row and most of them have been dominating.
In each of their last four games they have won by at least nine points. In their last game against UMBC they were actually down by five at half. They outscored them 50-27 in the second half to advance to the championship game.
To win this game they are going to have to continue to play like they did in the second half of their last game. They average 75.8 points per game so scoring is never an issue.
The Islanders need to push the pace in this game and try to get the Peacocks playing as fast as they can. If they are able to do that they can win this game.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Under is 7-1 in SPC last 8 non-conference games.
- Under is 6-2-2 in SPC last 10 games as a favorite.
- Under is 7-2-2 in SPC last 11 overall.
- Under is 11-3 in AMCC last 14 home games.
