The Mountaineers have three guards who average at least 11 points per game, with Damian Chong Qui leading that charge. Mount St. Mary’s defense struggled in the first game against the Colonials and that defense is going to need to be better.

At home this season the Colonials are averaging 69.7 points while the defense is giving up 61.7 points. 

The Colonials are led by Josh Williams and AJ Bramah who are both averaging around 13 points per game. 

The Mountaineers are 7-3 ATS in their last ten games against Robert Morris. The Colonials are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 games against the Northeast Conference.
