Massachusetts @ South Florida
Current Records: Massachusetts 4-1; South Florida 2-5
What to Know
The Massachusetts Minutemen will take on the South Florida Bulls at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday at Yuengling Center. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, UMass beat the Charlotte 49ers 60-54 last week.
Meanwhile, South Florida didn't have too much trouble with the St. Francis (N.Y.) Terriers at home this past Friday as they won 75-60. The Bulls' success was spearheaded by the efforts of center Russel Tchewa, who had 16 points along with six rebounds, and guard Tyler Harris, who had 18 points. Tchewa's performance made up for a slower matchup against the Saint Joseph's Hawks last Tuesday.
Barring any buzzer beaters, UMass is expected to win a tight contest. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
The wins brought UMass up to 4-1 and South Florida to 2-5. The Minutemen are 2-1 after wins this year, the Bulls 1-0.
