What to Know
A Northeast battle is on tap between the Sacred Heart Pioneers and the Wagner Seahawks at 7 p.m. ET Thursday at William Pitt Center - West Gym. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
Sacred Heart was just a bucket short of a victory on Saturday and fell 82-81 to the Stonehill Skyhawks.
Meanwhile, Wagner came up short against the St. Francis (N.Y.) Terriers last week, falling 65-56. Guard DeLonnie Hunt had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 31 minutes but putting up just seven points on 2-for-11 shooting and four turnovers.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Pioneers are expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 2-8-1 against the spread when favored.
Sacred Heart came up short against Wagner in the teams' previous meeting in January, falling 68-58. Maybe Sacred Heart will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
