The American Athletic Conference Tournament will be one of the most intriguing ones heading into the weekend with several teams’ NCAA Tournament hopes hanging in the balance. Wichita State, Memphis, Tulsa, Cincinnati and Connecticut all find themselves on the bubble heading into the tourney and an early loss can be the last straw for the selection committee.

In other big news, the AAC announced yesterday that the Tournament will be closed off to fans as a precautionary measure for the coronavirus. It will be interesting to see how players respond to playing in a nearly open gym, I advise treading careful on the slate as we wait to draw conclusions after seeing how teams play in the new conditions.

AAC Tournament First Round Betting Odds, Picks

No. 9 South Florida vs. No. 8 Central Florida

  • Odds: PK
  • Over/Under: 126.5
  • Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
  • TV: ESPNU

The story of this game will be the two teams’ defenses. Both South Florida (14-17), and Central Florida (16-14) rank in the top 100 in defensive efficiency, according to KenPom. On top of that, both clubs like to slow the ball down and value the clock. USF ranks 307 in tempo while UCF ranks comes in at a modest 221. With two clubs that like to run the timer and can generate stops, this game can be tough on the eyes.
