FAU vs Memphis
This game is going to be tight. Both of these teams have tremendous upside and I could see either of these two teams winning this game. Memphis has a record of 26-8, while FAU has a record of 31-3. Memphis tends to put up more points in their games than FAU does, and they have one guard in Kendrick Davis that puts up a ton of points. Kendrick averages 22.1 ppg and he is unlike anything that FAU has as their team.
FAU has won each of their last 5 and Memphis has won four of their last five including a win in their conference tournament finals against Houston. What makes FAU so attractive to me is the height of their center Vladislav Goldin as well as their defense. Goldin has 4 inches over the forward that he will be facing off again and FAU has been finding ways to slow down their opponents scoring this year.
For a reason that I don’t really know, I really like FAU in this matchup. I believe the Owls are going to show up in a big way and surprise the Memphis fans and players.
