The Eastern Kentucky Colonels and the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles meet in college basketball action from Eblen Center on Saturday.
The Colonels enter this one at 8-12 so far. The Colonels are 4-1 in their last five games, falling to Belmont while otherwise beating Eastern Illinois, SIUE, Tennessee State and JSU.
In the win over the Gamecocks, Eastern Kentucky’s Jomaru Brown led the team with 24 points, two rebounds and two assists. Tre King added 18 points and nine boards there, and Russhard Cruickshank had 15 points.
Over on the Golden Eagles’ side, they’re 5-15 this year. The Golden Eagles are 2-1 in their last three games, with a loss to Eastern Illinois sandwiched between wins over SIUE and Morehead State.
In the win over Morehead State, Tennessee Tech’s Jr. Clay put up 18 points with five assists and three rebounds. Also in double-digits there with 12 points apiece were Tujautae Williams and Keishawn Davidson—who also had six assists and five rebounds.
The Eagles are 0-5 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. Tennessee Tech is 4-12 ATS in their last 16 overall and the over is 9-3 in their last 12 overall.
Meanwhile, the Colonels are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last five overall. The over is 5-1 in EKU’s last six overall and 5-1 in their last six road games.
Eastern Kentucky has been playing a lot better over their last eight games or so (minus the 87-56 blowout loss to Belmont, that is). The Colonels have scored at least 77 points in four of their last five games, but oddly enough all their wins in that span have been close.
As for Tennessee Tech, they’ve had some good offensive performances lately, but they’ve also had a few duds. I’m going to stick with the Colonels on the cover here.
