Stephen Nover's Colonial Athletic Association Game of Year
(NCAAB) William & Mary vs. Hampton, 02/02/2023 7:00 PM, Score: 57 - 62
Point Spread: 0.00 | -110.00 William & Mary (Away)
Result: Loss
I'm surprised William & Mary didn't open a mid-range favorite. I rate the Tribe much better than Hampton.

William & Mary has a superior record - 9-14 overall, 4-6 in the Colonial Athletic Association - compared to the Pirates' 5-17 mark and 2-8 CAA record. 
The Tribe also proved that by defeating the Pirates, 81-65, as an 8-point home favorite on Jan. 11. 

William & Mary is statistically better than Hampton, too, on both sides of the ball. The Pirates rank last in the CAA in shooting percentage and second-to-last in defensive field goal percentage. They also rate last in the league in rebounding margin. But where William & Mary holds a significant edge is 3-point shooting. The Tribe is 38th in the country in 3-point accuracy while Hampton is 344th in 3-pt defense. 

The major concern about the Tribe is their lack of road victories. Some of this concern can be eased by the Tribe upsetting UNC Wilmington as a 12-point road 'dog on Jan. 14. Hampton hasn't been a good home team either going 1-5 ATS in its last six home contests.
