Siena won the MAAC this season and they beat Fairfield twice during the regular season. They have a very well-balanced offense with two forwards, a guard/forward, and a guard averaging in double figures led by F Alex Franklin (16.1 ppg).

Fairfield will have to win this game with their frontcourt. Even though G Derek Needham (16.3 ppg) is the leading scorer the next highest scoring guard is only averaging 5 ppg.

Fairfield has their work cut out for them in this game, as they were not only swept this season by Siena, but they average fewer points per game and are allowing more points per game.

Southern Conference Final Odds

Wofford Terriers (25-8 15-3 Southern) vs. Appalachian State Mountaineers (22-11 13-5 Southern)

Bovada has Wofford as 4-point favorites in this game with a total of 134.5.

This season Wofford was 15-12-2 ATS and Appalachian State was 17-8 ATS.

Wofford won the regular season Southern Conference title, is on a 12 game winning streak, but in the only match up against Appalachian State they lost.

Wofford wins with their solid defense, which is giving up an average of only 61.5 ppg. If they do not play D they may be in trouble since they are not a high-scoring team and they only have one player that is averaging in double figures in F Noah Dahlman (17 ppg).

Appalachian State is led by the solid backcourt duo of guards Donald Sims (20.3 ppg) and Kellen Brand (11.7 ppg). These two have to hit their open J’s tonight and C Isaac Butts (8.8 ppg 8.2 rpg) has to have a good game on the boards.

The Mountaineers are currently on a six game winning streak.

Colonial Conference Finals

William & Mary Tribe (22-9 12-6 Colonial) vs. Old Dominion Monarchs (25-8 15-3 Colonial)

Bovada has Old Dominion as 9-point favorites in this game with a total of 117.5.

This season William & Mary was 16-10-1 ATS and Old Dominion was 12-16-1 ATS.

William & Mary will have to figure out how to score on an ODU defense that is one of the best in the nation only giving up an average of 57.3 ppg. William & Mary has three players that are averaging in double figures led by G David Schneider (15.6 ppg).

Old Dominion only has one player averaging in double figures in F Gerald Lee (14.8 ppg), but they also have another forward and two guard/forwards that can score, rebound, and especially play solid defense.
