Obviously both teams come into this game with some heat because they won their respective conference tournament. The key for FGCU is it has been hitting the glass hard. They have out-rebounded their last four opponents by 11 or more. The Knights have actually found themselves on the losing battle on the glass in three of their last four games, so they are relying on strong shooting. That can be tough when the pressure is on for the NCAA Tournament. Dickinson hasn’t been in this spot since 2006 while the Eagles reached the Sweet 16 back in 2013. Look for that to pay off in this game.
