South Dakota State is out to keep their 14-game home win streak alive.
The UMKC Kangaroos typically have all the answers at home, but on Saturday the Jackrabbits proved too difficult a challenge. South Dakota State captured a comfortable 86-75 win.
Meanwhile, Nebraska Omaha found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 95-74 punch to the gut against the St. Thomas (MN) Tommies on Saturday.
South Dakota State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 22.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
