Mount St Marys Mountaineers vs. Texas Southern Tigers

The Texas Southern Tigers take on the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers in the First Four of the NCAA Tournament for a berth as a No. 16 seed. Texas Southern won 14 out of their last 15 games. Mount St. Mary’s won the NEC conference tournament as a 4 seed after beating Wagner and Bryant.

The mount is backed by Damian Chong Qui, averaging 14.9 a game. The Mountaineers play a very slow tempo style of basketball. They allow just 62.3 points per game while being one of the better rebounding teams in the country. On the other hand, the Tigers play at a lightning fast pace. They get up and down the floor and will get to the rack. They also get to the free throw line a ton. Im gonna back the Texas Southern Tigers to be aggressive and fun to watch in this one.
