What to Know

We've got another exciting MEAC matchup on schedule as the SC State Bulldogs and the Coppin State Eagles are set to tip at 7:30 p.m. ET on February 5th at Smith-Hammond-Middleton Center. Given that the pair suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this match.

SC State unfortunately witnessed the end of their three-game winning streak on Saturday. They fell just short of the Bears by a score of 72-70. SC State didn't live up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the advantage oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game.
