The UTSA Roadrunners and the Charlotte 49ers meet in college basketball action from Halton Arena on Saturday.
UTSA enters this one at 11-13 overall. The Roadrunners are 2-2 in their last four games, falling to UAB and Middle Tennessee while otherwise beating Rice and Old Dominion.
In the OT win over the Monarchs, UTSA’s Jhivvan Jackson put up a whopping 45 points with three assists and one rebound. Keaton Wallace added 21 points with six rebounds and two assists, and Jacob Germany had 15 points with eight points.
Over on the Charlotte side, they’re 13-9 so far. The 49ers are 3-2 in their last five games, falling to LA Tech and Southern Miss while beating Florida Atlantic, FIU and UTEP otherwise.
In the win over the Miners, Charlotte’s Jahmir Young led the way on 14 points with eight rebounds and five assists. Drew Edwards added 13 points with four rebounds and Amidou Bamba had 11 points with three boards.
Charlotte is 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 Saturday games and 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 home games. The 49ers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five overall and the over is 7-1 in their last eight overall.
Meanwhile, the Roadrunners are 18-7 ATS in their last 25 Saturday games and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 road games. UTSA is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 after an ATS win and the over is 14-2 in their last 16 overall.
UTSA’s Thursday win was pretty crazy; the Roadrunners jumped out to a 44-27 edge, then were outscored 27-44 in the second half before eking it out in OT. That’s par for the course lately though—the Roadrunners’ last four games have been decided by eight or fewer points each time.
As for Charlotte, they’ve had some close calls lately as well, but more often than not they’ve prevailed during their last five games. In any case this one should be fun. I like UTSA to keep it going and cover here.
