The model is aware that Desmond Claude, a sophomore guard for Xavier, has been the offensive engine. Claude is the master of ball control and quickness to outmaneuver opponents. In a game, the native of Connecticut averages 15.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. Before Washington on Nov. 17, Claude scored a career-high 19 points and pulled down seven rebounds.
Additionally, the model is aware of Oakland junior forward Trey Townsend’s exceptional energy on the court. Townsend regularly enters the lane and plays excellently on the glass. The native of Mississippi leads the team in assists (3.5), rebounds (8.7), and points (14.8). In the Nov. 20 matchup with Loyola Marymount, Townsend contributed eight boards and eight points.
The model’s current focus is Oakland vs. Xavier. Not only does the model indicate that one side of the spread hits in more than 70% of simulations, but it also leans under on the point total! Seeing the model is a MUST before making any college basketball selections.
