Houston vs. Towson CBB Prediction:
Houston moved to 3-0 on the season, winning each of the first 3 games by 30+ points. Towson has won two in a row after dropping their opener to Colorado. The Cougars have title expectations entering the 2023 season. Houston will be looking to showcase their talent in the Charleston Classic and bring home some early hardware at the end of it.
Houston should have no issues handling an undermatched Towson team in the first round. The Cougars’ defensively once again look elite, holding opponents to 43.0 ppg (1st in NCAA) through three games. Offensively for Houston, they are looking to fill the void of Marcus Sasser who led the Cougars last year. The additions of LJ Cryer from Baylor and Damian Dunn from Temple should help Houston offensively this year. Both guys can shoot the deep ball, which should help space the floor. Houston wears down the Tigers in this one and pull away to win big. Lay the number with the Cougars.
