SGP Pick #1:  San Diego State Under 63.5 Points

UConn is fresh off holding Miami to its lowest point total of the season in the Final Four. The Huskies cruised to a 72-59 victory, which marked their fifth straight 13+ point victory at the NCAA Tournament. They’ve navigated the March Madness bracket with ease, rarely being threatened.

They limited the Hurricanes to just 31% on two-point attempts, and held Miami without a field goal over the final six minutes. The Canes offense was no joke, entering play fifth in offensive efficiency, but they couldn’t get anything going against this tenacious UConn D.

The game prior, the Huskies limited Gonzaga to a season-low 54 points in a rout. The Zags were the nation’s number one offense in both efficiency and points per game, but shot only 33.3% from the field.

Now UConn gets SDSU, a program built entirely on defense. The Aztecs ranked fourth in defensive efficiency this season, but 68th on offense. They’ve put up 63 points or less twice already during March Madness, against much weaker defenses than what they’ll see on Monday.

SGP Pick #2: UConn -6.5

UConn has a +103 point differential so far through five March Madness games. They’re the seventh team all-time to outscore their opponents by 100+ points entering the National Championship Game, with five of the previous six going on to win the title.

The lone exception was Duke in 1999, who would up losing to a Huskies team that featured Richard Hamilton and Khalid El-Amin.

UConn is just the sixth team to win each of their first five games by double figures, and are statistically the most balanced team in college hoops. The Huskies rank third in offensive efficiency and eighth in defensive efficiency, the only team to grade out top-10 in both categories.

Dating back to late February, they’ve won 10 of their last 11, winning by at least 7 points in each of those victories.

SGP Pick #3: Adama Sanogo 8+ Rebounds

No need to go to in depth with this one. Adama Sanogo has gobbled up at least eight boards in six straight, pulling down double-digit rebounds in back-to-back outings.

The Aztecs are small in the front court outside of Nathan Mensah, and Sanogo has 15 pounds on him. The 6-9 forward averaged eight boards per game during the regular season, and helped UConn finish inside the top-10 in the country in rebounding.

San Diego State meanwhile, were 72nd in total rebounding and 98th on the defensive glass. The offensive end is where Sanogo does some of his best work, averaging three boards per night in enemy territory. Often times those leads to easy buckets in tight, which is one of the reasons he shoots such a high percentage (61%) from the field.
