since the Little Caesar's Arena venue for the tournament (8 miles from campus) may be their biggest asset. Titans
up tempo style offense has been forced to overcome their sieve like defense (329th in the nation in KenPom
defensive efficiency ratings) but it's sporadic play has led to their 4-11 Horizon ats mark. However, seven of their
11 conference losses have been by less than 10 points which is the current line and they have not lost a game by
10 points this month.
As I said earlier, just don't see any way UIC brings anything less than total focus and full effort tonight. A
majority of handicapping factors suggest they can cover this number and maybe a small look in that
direction is warranted. Would rather lean toward the “under” 158 for tonight's free play for a few
reasons. First, the Flames defense has already overwhelmed Detroit's offense once this season and the
personnel suggests they can do it again. HC Steve McClain's squad has the #1 FG% in Horizon League
play which includes #1 vs. 2pt FG's, #1 vs 3pt FG's and #1 in blocked shots. On the other side of the coin,
the Titans price tags on totals lately have been a bit much as indicated by the 1-6 “under” streak they
are on right now. While Illinois-Chicago likes to play with pace, their defense really has been their calling
card this season and that should shine through here in this contest.
Recommendation: UNDER 158thanks Drew. FYI the podcast (or at least the RSS feed) hasn't updated since 2/14.

I'm probably not supposed to say this, but I just had dinner with a bunch of our guys the other night. And here we are, we weren't competing for the playoffs. I was like, “Look, losing is our best option.” Adam would hate hearing that, but at least I sat down, and I explained it to them. And I explained what our plans were going to be this summer, that we're not going to tank again. This was
