Fresno State Bulldogs – March Madness Team Predictions, Odds and Preview 2016

Midwest No. 14 – Fresno State Bulldogs (Overall: 25-9, Conf: 13-5)

Team Strengths


The drought is finally over, as the Fresno State Bulldogs are headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001. They’re set to face the Utah Utes in the first round and will be leaning on none other than Marvelle Harris to lead their offensive attack (75.3 PPG). He is the reason why the Bulldogs are in this position right now as the senior guard has been playing exceptional basketball across 34 games this season. In that stretch, he is averaging 20.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists.

Also, Karachi Edo should give the Bulldogs another option to rely on for offense. The junior forward has managed to score in double-digits in all but one of last eight games. Over all this season, Edo is third in the team in points with 9.9 a game.

Team Weaknesses

A long absence from the NCAA Tournament could catch the Bulldogs off guard. The atmosphere, pressure, and the level of competition are at its highest level and they might not be mentally ready for it. More importantly, their best player in Marvelle Harris will need all the support he can get from his teammates to keep up against a high-scoring and loaded team like the Utah Utes in the first round.
