It's the College Basketball Invitational from Daytona Beach, Florida. San Jose State is a big favorite but a long way from home. San Jose State was ninth in the 11-team Mountain West Conference in points scored (67.5 pg) and field goal shooting (.437%), 10th in 3-point shooting (.326%), and dead-last in free-throw shooting (.673%). San Jose State is 142-185 ATS after playing three straight as an underdog, plus 25-47 ATS in March action. Guard play is key in March and Southern Indiana has it with the backcourt of senior Jelani Simmons (13.7 ppg) and Isaiah Swope (15.6 ppg) leading the Screaming Eagles in scoring. The team was fourth in the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring (76.5 ppg) and No. 1 from long range (.377%), while the defense was third in field goal shooting allowed (.435%). Southern Indiana covered in losses at Missouri (97-91 as a +19 dog) and at Notre Dame (82-70 as a +14 dog). Play Southern Indiana.
