This is a David vs Goliath story, but that's nothing new to Saint Peter's. They've already beaten Kentucky, Murray State, and Purdue. They're playing with house money at this point, and that's dangerous.

The Peacocks are on a 10-game win streak heading into today, obviously playing their best basketball. What makes them so dangerous is the defensive play, especially from KC Ndefo. He's a three-time MAAC Defensive Player of the Year. He blocks shots like a mad man and steals extra possessions for Saint Peter's which will help on days like today.
