The IUPUI Jaguars (6-22, 2-13 CONF) and the UIC Flames (13-15, 8-7 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 22nd for a Horizon League matchup at the Credit 1 Union Arena in Chicago, IL. The game will be played at 4:12 PM eastern time. 

IUPUI is coming off a 106-66 loss to Wright State in their last game. IUPUI has been abysmal all season long, and they’re currently on a six-game losing streak. UIC is coming off a strong, 73-43 road win over Northern Kentucky, which could quite possibly be the best win of the season for UIC. UIC has won three of its last five games overall. 

IUPUI scores 70.2 points per game on 40.9% FG shooting this season. The Jaguars leading scorer is G Marcus Burk, who scores 21.0 PPG. The Jags’ leading rebounder is F Elyjah Goss, who averages 11.5 RPG. IUPUI allows 79.9 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a -9.7 scoring differential so far this season. IUPUI also earns 35.9 rebounds, 13.3 assists, 2.6 blocks, and 6.6 steals per game as a team.

UIC scores 67.5 points per game on 43.8% FG shooting this season. The Flames leading scorer and rebounder is G Tarkus Ferguson, who scores 14.4 PPG and earns 5.6 RPG. UIC allows 69.8 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a -2.3 point differential so far this season. UIC also earns 36.1 rebounds, 14.2 assists, 4.1 blocks, and 5.8 steals per game as a team. 

IUPUI is 9-17 ATS this season and 3-7 ATS in their last ten games. IUPUI is also 6-9 ATS on the road so far this season. UIC is 15-11-1 ATS this season and 7-2-1 ATS in their last ten games. UIC is also 5-7 ATS at home so far this season.

UIC may not have the best talent in the Horizon League; however, they are very well-coached and play great fundamental basketball on both sides of the ball. I think UIC will win this game, but I like the under 146 as the play in this one. UIC does not score many points, and I think they will hold IUPUI to under 65 points. I will take the under 146
