The Radford Highlanders (19-9, CONF 14-2) and Hampton Pirates (13-16, CONF 8-8) face off in a Big South showdown at the Hampton Convocation Center. Radford knocked off Hampton 83-79 in late January. 

Radford looks like they could be the Big South representative in the NCAA Tournament, and coming into this game they have lost nine games in a row. During that nine game stretch Radford has also covered six of those spreads.

Over the last five games Radford is averaging 79 points per game and shooting 51.8 percent from the field while their defense is giving up 66.4 points per game. 

Radford is led by guard Carlik Jones who is averaging 19.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.5 assists while shooting almost 49.9 percent from the field. In the last game against SCUS, Jones dropped 22 points and helped lead Radford to an easy victory. 

Hampton comes into this game having won two of the last three games, but the loss was a bad one allowing 81 points to Weber. 

At home this season Hampton has an 11-3 record compared to on the road where they are just 2-13. At home Hampton is averaging 81.4 points while the defense is giving up 79.7 points. The defense never really steps up for Hampton so if they want success in this game, the offense is going to need to be strong early. 

Hampton is led by Jermaine Marrow and Benjamin Stanley who are both averaging over 22 points per game. 

The over is 7-2 in Radford’s last nine games played on Thursday. The over is 7-1 in Hampton’s last eight home games. The over is 14-3 in Hampton’s last 17 games overall. The over is 20-7-1 in Hampton’s last 28 games against the Big South.

These are two offenses who can run up the score, and there should be plenty of scoring by both squads in this game. Radford knocked off Hampton 83-79 earlier in the season and there is no reason both of these teams can’t hit 80 in this one. Back the over to cash by at least ten points in this one.
