The Cardinals, who won the SLC East Division title with an 11-5 conference mark, were the No. 3 seed in the tournament. This will be Lamar’s sixth trip to the NCAA Tournament and first since 2000. Wednesday will also mark the first meeting between the two schools in men’s basketball. Three players average double figures for the Cardinals, led by senior Mike James and his 17.0 points per game. Lamar averages 73.9 points per game and owns a +5.2 rebounding margin on the season.

Look for Vermont to win in what I expect will be low scoring. My Pick – Vermont  +3.
