If you haven’t been following MFST, then you have been missing out on some great early season college basketball coverage.

That includes this Thanksgiving week as we are sending two guys (myself and Brandon Reid) to cover the AdvoCare Invitational in sunny Orlando, Florida.

The Tournament features a great lineup of games that start on Thanksgiving Day. Below we predict exactly how those games will turn out…AdvoCare InvitationalCanisius vs Villanova

I already predicted this matchup in a ful-length article here. Ultimately the Wildcats will be too much for the Golden Griffins.

Winnner: Villanova

Oklahoma State vs Memphis

MFST’s Brandon Reid will be rooting for his hometown Memphis Tigers, and I do believe they are the more talented team—Penny Hardaway is going to have his Tigers advancing in the NCAA Tornament in no time. This time however, I think we both want to see a Canisius vs Memphis second round matchup—but it will be in the loser’s bracket.

Winner: Oklahoma State

Charleston vs LSU

Charleston was a Tournament team a season ago and bring back a lot of talent—but no one will match Naz Reid and his ability to do damage in the paint.

Winner: LSU

UAB vs Florida State

Florida State is my favorite to win the entire Invitational—they are that good.

Winner: Florida State

2nd Round-Winners Bracket

Villanova vs Oklahoma State

Villanova is going to use this Tournament to get back into their winning ways—they handle the Cowboys en route to a championship showdown between the winner of LSU vs FSU.

Winner: Villanova

LSU vs Florida State

LSU may have the most dominant player in the tourney in Naz Reid, but FSU is the most complete team. From Trent Forrest to Terrance Mann to PJ Savoy, there is no slowing down this Seminoles squad.

Winner: FSU

2nd Round-Losers Bracket

Canisius vs Memphis

A showdown the MFST community is hoping for—the Tigers have more overall talent than the Griffs, but with two potential NBA players on the roster, Canisius will give Penny Hardaway and his Memphis-coached team a run for their money.

Winner: Memphis

Charleston vs UAB

Charleston should be able to handle the Blazers in the paint and advance to the ‘losers bracket’ championship game.

Winner: Charleston

Championship Game

Villanova vs Florida State

Villanova gets to the championship with what some may call ‘an easy road’ beating Canisius and Oklahoma State—but this is exactly what the Wildcats needed—a confidence boost.

That confidence will end when they play the Seminoles who will be too much for Nova to handle.

Winner and Champion: Florida State

3rd Place Game

Oklahoma State vs LSU

Oklahoma State will matchup well with the Tigers as both teams possess solid frontcourt power. Who will make their long-range shots will be the winner.

Winner: LSU

5th Place game

Memphis vs Charleston

Memphis will get enough from their senior leaders and talented freshman to fire past Charleston.

Winner: Memphis

7th Place Game

Canisius vs UAB

Canisius has been struggling with their field goal and three-point percentage to start the season. After two more losses, they finally find their stroke ending the AdvoCare Invitational with a victory.

Winner: Canisius
