Free NCAA Pick Wednesday

#534 Washington PK over Minnesota 5:30 PM CT

The Gophers are 4-0 this season but the schedule has been suspect. Beating Utah and Texas A&M sounds impressive but both of those programs could be in down seasons and both contests were close. Minnesota has shot nearly 41 percent from 3-point range this season which won’t be sustainable as the competition heats up. This is a team with two freshman starters surrounding the veterans and there isn’t great depth on this squad now facing a third game in four days in Vancouver.

Washington’s only loss this season came vs. an Auburn team that didn’t look out of place vs. top ranked Duke yesterday. The 4-1 Huskies have played top 100 teams in four of five games and while the margins of victory haven’t been overwhelming this is a deliberately-paced squad that leads with defense.

The Huskies have a massive edge in free throw shooting in this matchup and will be playing much closer to home. In his first season with Washington the Huskies improved from 9 wins to 21 wins for Mike Hopkins and all five starters from last season are back on the roster this season plus sophomore Hameir Wright who has grown into a starting role after coming off the bench last season.
