In the loss to the Bulldogs, AR-Pine Bluff’s only double-digit scorer was Terrance Banyard, with 14 points and a team-high 11 rebounds. Both Dequan Morris and Marcus Wallace chipped in seven points apiece there as well.
The Lions are 6-2 ATS in their last eight Monday games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven after an ATS loss. AR-Pine Bluff is 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and the under is 19-7 in their last 26 overall.
