BTP Predictions Season Finale

Once more unto the breach of unsuccessful picks

NCAA Basketball: Pittsburgh at N.C. State Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s just win at Cameron and seal this at-large bid up, eh?

Opponent: Duke

Date: Monday, March 2, 2020

Home/Away: Away


Prediction: 64-79 (L)

Comment: Hard for lightning to strike twice. Would need to play even better than the last matchup and Duke won’t be surprised this time, especially at home.


Prediction: 67-85 (L)

Comment: Just feel like this is the game where Coach K gets Duke right and they take out some vengeance. Would love to be wrong.


Prediction: 68-82 (L)

Comment: Actually think we’ll play them tough through much of the game but remain at arms length. Tre Jones & company find a way to hit big shots, Vernon Carey has a monster game


Prediction: 78-71 (W)

Comment: I dunno, man, I'm just the vessel.

*KenPom*: 70-82 (L)

BTP Staff Cumulative Prediction: 69-80 (L)

Wake Forest

Friday, March 6, 2020

Home/Away: Home


Prediction: 74-67 (W)

Comment: Solid win for Senior Night to carry into the ACCT.


Prediction: 84-76 (W)

Comment: State builds an early lead and just kinda cruises from there, never letting Wake get within two shots.


Prediction: 85-77 (W)

Comment: Season on the line (again) but State is guarenteed to finish .500 in the ACC along with 1-1 in ACCT just so we are all forced to scoreboard watch the rest of the country and sweat on Selection Sunday


Prediction: 83-82 (W)

Comment: Wake has been a lot better the last couple of months--this is going to be one of those stupid games.

*Kenpom Prediction*: 78-72 (W)

BTP Staff Cumulative Prediction: 81-75 (W)
