Free NCAAB Pick:
The Army Black Knights enjoyed a solid season as they went 10-8 in Patriot League play which claimed the 4th seed for the conference tournament, and they have one of the best scoring duos in the Patriot League. The Black Knights have an experienced roster and that starts with Tommy Funk who is averaging 19.6 PPG and 7.3 APG while Matt Wilson is pitching in 17.9 PPG and 7.8 RPG, and they could be in line for a big game against a Lafayette team that ranks 6th in the conference in points allowed (68.3 PPG). The Lafayette Leopards have struggled to score the basketball as a team this season as they rank 7th in the Patriot League in PPG (68.1), and I don’t think they will find enough scoring on the road to overcome an Army team they only scored 48 points against in February. Final Score Prediction, Army Black Knights win and cover ATS 72-67.
