Analysis

Creighton had a tough time the entire night at both ends of the floor in their loss to Tennessee Friday. The Blue Jays, who rank top 10 in offensive efficiency while shooting a high percentage couldn’t overcome the stifling Tennessee defense, which pressures you nonstop with nearly every shot contested. Expect it to be the same story when the Vols take on Purdue. You won’t see those wide open 3 point shots that Gonzaga allowed and ultimately knocked them out of the tournament. Zach Edey cannot go to his left, and I’m sure Rick Barnes noticed that was the way Gonzaga tried to force him. That’s not to say that Edey isn’t going to get his points, as at 7 foot 4 and 300 pounds he’s of course a major threat at the college level. Tennessee has some strong bigs of their own, however, and Purdue will have a much tougher time scoring from beyond the arc. The Vols also have Dalton Knecht, who dropped 26 points while Zeigler added 18. Greg McDermott knew his team couldn’t guard the duo on defense so he went to a zone late. It failed as Tennessee went on to get the win and cover. This will be a very physical game and one where we want the points in our pocket as the Boilermakers are on upset alert Sunday. Take Tennessee. 

3% Play on Tennessee (655) at +3 or better, 2% at +2.5 or worse
