Campbell Fighting Camels
The Fighting Camels wrapped up their season with a 20-12 record in the Big South, finishing behind only Radford. Their season ended versus Gardner-Webb, which upset Campbell 79-74 as a 3.5-point dog in the conference tournament on March 8. Andrew Eudy led Campbell in assists (3.6), rebounds (6.8) and blocks (1.4) per game, while Chris Clemons was the team’s leading scorer with 30.0 points per contest.
The Spartans finished in second place of the Southern Conference with a 28-6 record but fell to Wofford 70-58 in the conference tournament. The team wasn’t great against the spread this season, posting a 14-16-2 ATS record and failed to cover as an 8-point underdog in that matchup with Wofford. Francis Alonso paced the Spartans with 17.2 points per game, while Eric Hamilton was the team’s leading rebounder with 4.5 boards per contest.
The over is 4-1 in the Fighting Camels’ last five games overall and cashed in 10 of the Spartans’ last 14 games coming off a loss. The over is also 4-0 in NC-Greensboro’s last four home games when playing a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400. Campbell surrendered 79 and 77 points, respectively in its last two games, while NC-Greensboro scored over 70 points in three of their final five contests. Both teams should supply more than enough offense tonight.
NIT Prediction: Campbell/NC-Greensboro over 142
