The Southern Utah Thunderbirds (14-10, 7-6 CONF) and the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks (13-10, 7-7 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 15th for a Big Sky matchup at the J. Lawrence Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff, AZ. The game will be played at 6:00 PM eastern time. 

Southern Utah is coming off a 70-55 loss on the road to Sacramento State. Southern Utah has lost three of its last five games overall. Northern Arizona is coming off an embarrassing 84-54 home loss to Northern Colorado on Thursday. Northern Arizona has now lost two games in a row, both conference losses. 

Southern Utah has a +9.0 point differential, so it is puzzling to see why they have not had more success than they have had. The Thunderbirds score 73.3 points per game on 45.5% FG shooting this season. Southern Utah allows 64.3 points per game to the opposition. Southern Utah also earns 38.0 rebounds, 12.6 assists, 4.5 blocks, and 7.4 steals per game.

Northern Arizona owns a +2.1 point differential so far this season. The Lumberjacks score 72.0 points per game on 45.2% FG shooting. Northern Arizona allows 69.9 points per game to the opposition, but that total has been on the rise recently as the defense has struggled. Northern Arizona also earns 34.0 rebounds, 13.5 assists, 2.3 blocks, and 6.7 steals per game. 

Southern Utah is 10-12 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS in their last ten games. Southern Utah is also 7-4 ATS on the road so far this season.  Northern Arizona is 10-11 ATS this season and 3-7 ATS in their last ten games. Northern Arizona is also 3-6 ATS at home so far this season.

Northern Arizona took a really bad loss last time out, at home nonetheless. I cannot trust them after such a demoralizing loss, so I will take Southern Utah by default, but there are certainly many better games to take on the docket.
