Alabama State @ Pittsburgh

Current Records: Alabama State 0-4; Pittsburgh 1-3

What to Know

The Alabama State Hornets' road trip will continue as they head to Petersen Events Center at 2 p.m. ET Sunday to face off against the Pittsburgh Panthers. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

Alabama State received a tough blow last week as they fell 70-57 to the San Jose State Spartans.

Meanwhile, Pitt was close but no cigar this past Thursday as they fell 71-67 to the VCU Rams. A silver lining for the Panthers was the play of forward Blake Hinson, who had 18 points.

The Hornets have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 20.5-point spread they are up against. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the team is 1-3 ATS when expected to lose.

The losses put Alabama State at 0-4 and Pitt at 1-3. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Alabama State has only been able to knock down 33.10% percent of their shots, which is the 361st lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. The Panthers have had an even harder time: they have only been able to knock down 40.40% percent of their shots, which is the 38th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It could be a slow afternoon.
