UConn vs CBB Texas Prediction:
UConn looked impressive on both ends of the floor on Sunday, while Texas was lucky to get a win against Louisville.
Beat MSG in this final. UConn should have no problem scoring against a Texas team that gives up 80 points to a Louisville offense that is mediocre at best. Texas couldn’t find the depth range in Sunday’s contest 2/17 from deep as a team, I expect that number to improve by a significant margin on Monday. Both teams have a lot of players to advance this game as a whole.
