IUPUI @ Oakland

Regular Season Records: IUPUI 3-25; Oakland 19-11

What to Know

The IUPUI Jaguars and the Oakland Golden Grizzlies are even-steven against one another since February of 2018 (4-4), but not for long. IUPUI and the Golden Grizzlies are set to clash at 8 p.m. ET March 1 at Athletics Center Orena in the first round of the Horizon Conference Tourney. Oakland will be strutting in after a win while the Jaguars will be stumbling in from a defeat.

IUPUI found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 67-41 punch to the gut against the Green Bay Phoenix this past Saturday.

Meanwhile, Oakland was able to grind out a solid victory over the Cleveland State Vikings this past Saturday, winning 65-57.

IUPUI is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. Now might not be the best time to take IUPUI against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.

A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Jaguars have allowed their opponents an average of 7.4 steals per game, the 39th most in college basketball. To make matters even worse for IUPUI, Oakland ranks 15th in college basketball when it comes to steals per game, with 9.1 on average. In other words, IUPUI will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
