The Bulldogs (6-1 against the spread) boast the third-best Adjusted Offensive Efficiency (119.5 points per 100 possessions) in Division I, and it’s guided them past some oddly difficult matchups against Illinois and Arizona. The 6-foot-8, 230-pound Rui Hachimura (21.9 ppg) has been their catalyst on that end of the floor, generating a team-high 27.4 Possession Percentage.
