What to Know
The Bowling Green Falcons and the Central Michigan Chippewas will face off in a Mid-American clash at 7 p.m. ET Jan. 24 at McGuirk Arena. The Falcons should still be riding high after a victory, while CMU will be looking to get back in the win column.
Bowling Green was able to grind out a solid win over the Miami (Ohio) RedHawks this past Saturday, winning 83-73.
Meanwhile, CMU was expected to have a tough go of it this past Saturday, and, well, they did. Their painful 96-68 defeat to the Ohio Bobcats might stick with them for a while.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Bowling Green is expected to win a tight contest Tuesday. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with Bowling Green, who are 9-8-1 against the spread.
The Falcons' win brought them up to 9-10 while the Chippewas' loss pulled them down to 7-12. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Bowling Green is stumbling into the game with the 31st fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 11.3 on average. CMU has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 358th worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 16.4 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
