What to Know
The Loyola Chicago Ramblers' road trip will continue as they head to University of Dayton Arena at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday to face off against the Dayton Flyers. Dayton will be strutting in after a win while the Ramblers will be stumbling in from a loss.
The contest between Loyola Chicago and the Duquesne Dukes last week was not particularly close, with Loyola Chicago falling 72-58. A silver lining for Loyola Chicago was the play of forward Philip Alston, who shot 5-for-10 from downtown and finished with 25 points.
Meanwhile, the Richmond Spiders typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday Dayton proved too difficult a challenge. The Flyers were the clear victors by an 86-60 margin over the Spiders. Dayton got double-digit scores from four players: guard Koby Brea (18), forward DaRon Holmes II (17), forward Toumani Camara (16), and forward Mustapha Amzil (10).
The Ramblers are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the squad is 1-7 ATS when expected to lose.
Loyola Chicago is now 7-13 while Dayton sits at 14-8. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Loyola Chicago is stumbling into the game with the 355th most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 16.3 on average. The Flyers have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 17th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.9 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
