The currents odds on the game have the Dons favored over the Pilots by 17.5 points with a 138.5 o/u.  The scary part is the odds are usually very, very close.

USF is a Top-100 team with a 7-7 WCC record and they should easily hold onto 6th place and a first-round bye in Las Vegas, and have a chance to move to 5th with wins over UP and LMU this weekend.

Of course, we all remember UP's only WCC win in two years over the USF in early January when everyone had so much hope for this new look/new attitude Pilots team...and they won that night without Isaiah White who was out with flu-like symptoms

Interestingly, it would appear Isaiah will miss this game and the Santa Clara game on Saturday too because of a painful ankle sprain that has him on crutches, but he tells me he expects to be ready to play in Las Vegas on Thursday March 6h.

Hey, Pilots had a lead for almost the first two minutes, scoring a 3P for the first score.  USF then went on a 16-0 run, as Pilots missed 10 shots and made two turnovers.  Pilots made a couple baskets, then USF went on another 11 point run, before trading scores for the last 6 minutes.   Thus we're down 40-20 at half.

Walker "leads" with 5 points, while three guys have 3 points and three have 2 points. Shooting 25% overall, and 33% from 3P (they are 3 of 16 on 2P shots?!), with 9 TOs in the half.  Man, this team is struggling to score.

There appears to be no struggle involved.

Well, Pilots came out with a lot of effort, and started making shots to open the 2nd half. They closed to 52-49, but then USF woke up, and pushed the lead back to 18.
