Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Buccaneers are stumbling into the matchup with the 33rd most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 75 on average. Winthrop has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 46.80% from the floor on average, which is the 11th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball.
