Monmouth @ Colgate
Current Records: Monmouth 0-4; Colgate 3-3
What to Know
The Monmouth Hawks will head out on the road to face off against the Colgate Raiders at 7 p.m. ET Monday at Cotterell Court. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
Monmouth was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Thursday as they fell 64-59 to the Norfolk State Spartans.
Meanwhile, Colgate was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Friday as they fell 85-80 to the Duquesne Dukes. Colgate's loss came about despite a quality game from forward Ryan Moffatt, who had 21 points along with eight rebounds.
The Hawks have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 17-point spread they are up against. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the squad is 1-3 ATS when expected to lose.
Monmouth had enough points to win and then some against Colgate when the two teams previously met in December of last year, taking their contest 77-66. The rematch might be a little tougher for Monmouth since the team won't have home-court advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
