Alabama and Miami bounced back with Friday night victories and will play for fifth place in this weekend tournament.

NCAA Basketball: ESPN Events Invitational-Alabama vs Iona Jeremy Reper-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 10 Alabama Crimson Tide and Miami Hurricanes will battle for a fifth place finish in the ESPN Events Invitational on Sunday, November 28th from Orlando, Florida.

Alabama started out the tournament with a loss to the Rick Pitino-led Iona Gaels and followed that up with a win over Drake on Friday night. The Crimson Tide like to push the pace and are much more efficient on the offensive end than they are defensively.

Miami opened the event with a loss to the Dayton Flyers before beating North Texas on Friday to reach the fifth place game. The Hurricanes are also a better offensive team than they are on defense, so plenty of points could be scored in this matchup.

The Pick

Over 152

Both teams’ strengths come on offense and when you combine that with the pace this game could be played at, we’ll take the over in this spot. Early on, Alabama ranks No. 33 in possessions per game, and I’m betting this game will be played the way they want it to be.
