The UTEP Miners and Florida Atlantic Owls face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at FAU Arena.
The UTEP Miners have been inconsistent at best this season and coming into this game they sit with a 10-10 record overall. Even with the struggles, UTEP has won two games in a row over FIU. In the last game the offense was strong putting up 77 points and that was enough to come away with the victory. UTEP on the season is averaging 71 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.6 points per game. UTEP is shooting 42.3 percent from the field and 33 percent from behind the three point line. Guard Souley Boum has been the best player for UTEP averaging 18.6 points while shooting 37.3 percent from the field. Two different are players are averaging at least 14 points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Florida Atlantic Owls who sit with an 8-9 record overall and they have lost three games in a row. In the last game against UTSA, the defense really struggled giving up 86 points and that led to the loss. ON the season, FAU is averaging 80.4 points while their defense is giving up 68.4 points per game. FAU is shooting 46.7 percent from the field and 37.5 percent from behind the three point line. Jailyn Ingram has been the best player for Florida Atlantic averaging 13.6 points while shooting 46.2 percent from the field and 47.8 percent from behind the three point line.
This is going to be a competitive game, but I expect both teams are going to have no issues scoring. Look for both teams to run up the score and for the over to cash with ease. Back the over.
