If the Flames find a way to get into the NCAA Tournament, they would be the princess of the ball. This is a team that has just 14 wins on the season, and three of those have come here in this tournament. Unfortunately, what we tend to see from these teams that make it this far is that they flame out when they finally get into the position to finally really get into the field of 68. We saw it last year in the Atlantic Sun with Florida Gulf Coast, and we are probably going to see it here with Liberty as well. That being said, Charleston Southern isn’t exactly a team that has been tearing it up, and it is going to have its work cut out for it in this one against a team that challenged it the one time that these clubs met this year. The Flames hung within four points against the Bucs in January, and they could stick around again in this one. The combination of G Saah Nimley and G Arlon Harper both had great games in the semifinals against the VMI Keydets, and if they come to play on Sunday, Charleston Southern isn’t going to be beaten. Still, this is going to be a point spread that is just too high to justify playing the top seed in the conference. The Buccaneers are 0-2 ATS in this tournament. The Flames are 3-0 ATS in it. Go with the underdogs, though we don’t think an upset is going to be in the cards.
