What to Know

The Ball State Cardinals won both of their matches against the Bowling Green Falcons last season (81-80 and 91-82) and are aiming for the same result Tuesday. The Cardinals and Bowling Green will face off in a Mid-American battle at 7 p.m. ET at Stroh Center. Ball State will be strutting in after a win while Bowling Green will be stumbling in from a loss.

Ball State had enough points to win and then some against the Northern Illinois Huskies this past Saturday, taking their game 87-69.

Meanwhile, the matchup between Bowling Green and the Toledo Rockets this past Saturday was not a total blowout, but with the Falcons falling 91-77 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Ball State is expected to win a tight contest. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with the Cardinals, who are 10-9 against the spread.

Bowling Green's defeat took them down to 10-11 while Ball State's victory pulled them up to 14-7. A win for Bowling Green would reverse both their bad luck and Ball State's good luck.
