What to Know

The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats and the Alabama State Hornets are set to square off in an SWAC matchup at 9 p.m. ET Feb. 21 at Moore Gym. These two teams are looking to take out their frustrations on one another after having lost close ones recently.

The Wildcats were close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 62-60 to the Alabama A&M Bulldogs.

Alabama State lost a heartbreaker to the Florida A&M Rattlers when they met last month, and they left with a heavy heart again this past Saturday. Alabama State fell in an 86-83 heartbreaker.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Bethune-Cookman is expected to win a tight contest on Monday. But bettors beware: they are 0-4 against the spread when favored.

Bethune-Cookman is now 7-19 while Alabama State sits at 7-20. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Wildcats are stumbling into the contest with the 348th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 61.3 on average. The Hornets have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 31st worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 75.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
