Stephen Nover Free Friday NCAA Tourney Play
(NCAAB) Iona vs. Connecticut, 03/17/2023 4:30 PM, Score: 63 - 87
Point Spread: -9.00 | -110.00 Connecticut (Home)
Result: Win
If it wasn't for a two-point loss to Marquette in the Big East Conference Tournament semifinals, Connecticut would be riding a 10-game winning streak. The Huskies have a legitimate shot at making a deep tournament run.

I don't see Iona causing them a problem.

Iona dominated the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference this season, but it was a weak year in the MAAC. The Gaels are 2-5 ATS the past seven times they played a team with a winning record.

Gaels coach Rick Pitino also is likely to be on the move again. So that's a distraction.

(Editor's note: Stephen Nover is 10-2 on his last 12 premium/free college basketball plays following a 3-0 Thursday. Stephen's Friday card is headed by his NCAA Tournament Game of the Week.)
