Stephen Nover's NIT Dominator - 33-15-1 CBB Run!
Wichita State vs. Lipscomb,
04/02/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 64 - 71
Point Spread: +1/-105 Lipscomb
Lipscomb lacks the name recoginition of Wichita State. But the Bisons are the better team.
The Bisons had 14 road victories, most in the nation. So they are well-tested away from home. They are 21-7-1 ATS during their past 29 nonconference games.
The Bisons have plenty of experience from last season's NCAA Tournament team. They are 19-3 in their last 22 games and rank in the Top 10 in scoring, scoring margin and assists.
I respect Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall. But the Shockers are going to have problems matching up against senior guard Garrison Mathews, who can light things up from the perimeter like he did against North Carolina State in the quarterfinals of this NIT tournament scoring 44 points. Matthews has averaged at least 20 points in each of the past three seasons.
