The game in which will meet Hawaii and Mississippi. The tournament will be held at Diamond Head Hawaiian Airlines Classic in Honolulu and this will be a match for fifth place. But Misssisipi has a big problems right now.
Renard Sidney and Elgin Bailey, who are roommates, were involved in a fistfight after their game Wednesday night. The fight lasted several minutes before being broken up by teammates and coaches.
Otherwise, it's about two very important players in the team, Sidney has appeared in just two games this season and scored 31 points with 9 rebounds while Bailey has started 10 of the 11 games this season and is averaging 6.2 points and 3.9 rebounds. Both Sidney and Bailey would be significant losses.
It's a huge blow for the Mississippi, who are now without two of their best frontcourt players and they will miss at least the next two games.
Mississippi has 8-4 this season while the Hawaii 8-3 and in my opinion Hawaii are the favorites to get this match.
Mississippi won the last match against San Diego and the best was Sidney with 19 points but after the game came to a fight. Hawaii beat Utah 68-55 in a match where Hawaii allowed to Utah only one three-pointer in 15 attempts.
All in all, I expect Hawaii to beat Mississippi in this match because theyhave a lot of problems right now. Hawaii is also better in several categories, achieved more points, more precise with the free throw line, in precentage shot of the game.
I think it's enough to take their victory in this match.
