Why Texas A&M-CC can cover 

The Islanders feature a plethora of playmakers, including Isaac Mushila. The junior forward leads the team in scoring (13.5 points per game) and rebounding (9.5), while knocking down 53.5 percent of his field goals. He’s recorded 13 double-doubles this season, a big reason why the Islanders are in the NCAA Tournament.

Terrion Murdix is also a major contributor for the Islanders, averaging 9.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. He’s scored in double figures in each of his last six outings, which includes a 13-point performance in the Southland Conference title game. Plus, Texas A&M-CC is 10-1 in its last 11 meetings against an opponent from the SWAC. 

Why Texas Southern can cover

The Tigers played a very difficult schedule by mid-major standards, and Texas Southern netted an impressive road victory in Gainesville over the Florida Gators. Beyond that experience, Texas Southern has an offensive profile that is effective in key areas. The Tigers are in the top 25 nationally in offensive rebound rate, securing nearly 34 percent of missed shots. Texas Southern is also elite at avoiding blocked shots, with only 6.4 percent of shots rejected, and the Tigers are No. 1 in the SWAC in 2-point accuracy at 51.4 percent. 

Texas Southern finished No. 3 in its conference in adjusted offensive efficiency, and Texas A&M-CC has a couple of glaring weaknesses. The Islanders are No. 348 in the country in free-throw rate allowed, potentially paving the way to extra opportunities for Texas Southern. Texas A&M-CC is also near the basement of the country with only a 5.1 percent block rate on defense, giving Texas Southern license to attack the rim.
