Free NCAAB Pick:
The Radford Highlanders had an amazing season as they finished with a 15-3 conference record, and they have been amazing on the defensive side of the court as they are holding their opponents to an average of 67.3 PPG. The Highlanders are a common NCAA Tournament team, and they should once again return to the big stage as they have the best backcourt in the conference as Carlik Jones is averaging 20.4 PPG, 5.6 APG, and 5.4 RPG while Travis Fields is pitching in 14.2 PPG. The Charleston Southern Buccaneers have struggled on both sides of the court this season as they rank 6th in points scored and 7th in points allowed, and I don’t think they will have enough to compete with the Highlanders. Charleston Southern has struggled away from home this season as they are 5-10, and they will take an early exit from the Big South Tournament.
