Current Records: Morehead State 2-2; Vanderbilt 1-2
What to Know
The Morehead State Eagles' road trip will continue as they head to Memorial Gym at 7 p.m. ET Friday to face off against the Vanderbilt Commodores. Vanderbilt should still be feeling good after a victory, while the Eagles will be looking to regain their footing.
The contest between Morehead State and the West Virginia Mountaineers on Tuesday was not a total blowout, but with Morehead State falling 75-57 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. Guard Mark Freeman had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 32 minutes with 3-for-10 shooting.
Meanwhile, Vanderbilt came out on top in a nail-biter against the Temple Owls on Tuesday, sneaking past 89-87. Among those leading the charge for Vanderbilt was forward Myles Stute, who shot 7-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 21 points and six boards.
The Eagles are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Morehead State is now 2-2 while the Commodores sit at 1-2. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Morehead State is stumbling into the matchup with the 44th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 11.3 on average. Vanderbilt is completely their equal: they are 44th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
