What to Know
Get ready for a Sun Belt battle as the Southern Miss Golden Eagles and the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks will face off at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Reed Green Coliseum. Southern Miss is out to keep their 13-game home win streak alive.
The Golden Eagles didn't have too much trouble with the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns at home on Thursday as they won 82-71.
Meanwhile, Louisiana-Monroe came up short against the App. State Mountaineers on Thursday, falling 52-45.
Southern Miss is the favorite in this one, with an expected 12.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a six-game streak of ATS wins.
Southern Miss' win brought them up to 22-4 while Louisiana-Monroe's loss pulled them down to 11-15. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Golden Eagles have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 40.50%, which places them 34th in college basketball. Less enviably, the Warhawks have only been able to knock down 41.90% percent of their shots, which is the 37th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against Louisiana-Monroe.
