Comments

Tulsa is the clear favorite and has the edge in just about every statistical category. The Mids played a very explosive Memphis team really close last week. I think the Mids have been improving steadily throughout the season. That’s attributed to the player’s dedication and the coaches skill and leadership. I predict Navy to win this game in a close one.
