NEWSLETTER College Basketball Prediction From Indian Cowboy
Take Florida over LSU (1:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 9)
This weekend you will see the LSU Tigers hit the road to face the Florida Gators in College Basketball. Michael White’s Gators are a team that we are very high on since the start of the year as always a first-year coach has a lot to prove and their intensity from game to game is very strong. Coach White has huge shoes to fill in Billy Donovan’s, but his team has been up to the task this year. This is a team that is a top-25 squad, top on defense, top-20 in turnover margin, and their only losses are to MSU, Miami, Purdue and Florida State. Note, this team just beat Georgia by 14 points at home, which is not easy to do and given this team’s defensive efficiency, this spells disaster for a LSU team who is highly reliant on Ben Simmons. Look for Florida to double Simmons and let someone else try to beat them as LSU is outside the top 250 in 3-point field goals and outside the top 200 when it comes to free throw shooting as well. Florida has one of the brightest coaching staffs in the country, and they will get it done with a solid gameplan against LSU.
