Abilene Christian prospects
Abilene Christian is a bit of a tough team to judge. Their metrics and 23-4 record look pretty solid, but they’re just *so* much better than the next best team in the Southland Conference that it’s hard to take too much away. On the one hand they’re deep, with a very big rotation, which is usually a good thing. But in their case they lack a true leading scorer who can take over late in games, as their top scorer only averages 18.9 minutes per game. They’re much better on defense than offense, but I’m not sure their defense will translate here against a power conference opponent like Texas. Usually the teams that pull off these upsets, do so on the back of some dynamic scoring.
