Both teams won their first game of the Phil Knight Invitational on Thursday and should give us a great game to watch here. Connecticut averages over 85 points per game on offense, while Alabama averages around 80 points per game. Both teams played strong defensively to open the season, but they also really didn’t play anyone well outside of their opponents from Thursday. I expect a fast game here and I like the ending.
