What to Know
The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles have quite the challenge ahead of them as they're expected to be blown off the court. They will square off against the Marshall Thundering Herd on the road at 7 p.m. ET on Monday at Henderson Center. The Golden Eagles are looking to tack on another W to their 12-game streak on the road.
Tennessee Tech took their game at home last Thursday with ease, bagging an 82-48 victory over the Tennessee Wesleyan Bulldogs.
Meanwhile, Marshall was just a bucket short of a win last week and fell 83-82 to the Queens University Royals.
Tennessee Tech is now 1-1 while Marshall sits at 0-1. Two last-season numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Tennessee Tech has allowed their opponents an average of 12 steals per game, the 356th most in college basketball. But the Thundering Herd enter the matchup with 6.8 steals per game on average, good for 19th best in college basketball. In other words, the Golden Eagles will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
