Some people think that The Spartans are head and shoulders above the Bison, but the Bison are gamers. They give a 100 percent on both ends of the court and I would have liked to see both teams in the big dance. I think we would have had even more upsets. I like the Bison here,60%

Lipscomb's only recently loss was to Liberty (68-74) and UNC Greensboro only recent loss was to Wofford (58-70). And we now know how stout both Liberty and Wofford are as they are both still alive in the NCAA tournament. While Lipscomb is the lower seed in this game and they are on the road they are still slight road favorites. However, UNCG was solid in their last game and at home they will get it done winning and covering the spread. Their offense will be solid and their D will also keep the Bisons from shooting their typical high % from the field. I think Vegas has the wrong team favored here today, my money is on the Spartans to move on and advance to the next round of the NIT.

We got 5-seed Lipscomb Bison against UNC Greensboro, who got robbed of a NCAA bid. I think the Spartans had a good enough regular season to be in the field over others that made it. The Spartans are solid on both ends of the court ranking 81st on offense and 64th in scoring defense. UNC Greensboro sits at an average of 76.3 ppg. They average almost 8 three-pointers to boot. Defensively they are holding opponents to 67 ppg with a turnover margin of 4.7.50%
Lipscomb is a #5 seed in the NIT but honestly, with their high scoring offense I wonder if they should't have been ranked a little higher. This is going to be a tough match up for UNC Greensboro, but not the point where I think the Bison should be favored. UNC Greensboro is great at home, 15-1, this season and I have to believe they will continue with their stride. The Bisons average a hardy 83.6 ppg and manage 37 rebounds a night. On the defensive side the Bison rank 126th in scoring defense only allowing 69 points a night.
I have this as an upset, the Spartans should get this win, thus the cover.
