Hanner Fieldhouse. Georgia Southern will be seeking to avenge the 83-71 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played January 14th.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, James Madison beat the App. State Mountaineers 63-57 on Saturday.

Georgia Southern is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
