The Alabama A&M Bulldogs will go on the road to face the Alcorn State Braves this Monday. Both teams are playing for SWAC tournament seeding, as their only shot at a tournament bid would be through winning the conference. 

Alabama A&M comes into this game having lost their last one against the ASU Hornets. It was a terrible night offensively for the Bulldogs, as they shot 35.2% from the field and 35.7% from deep. Jalen Johnson was held in check, going 1-2 from the field for only 7 points. He is their leading scorer this year, averaging 17 points per game. The Bulldogs are averaging 69.1 points per game, and are shooting 41% from the field. Three points shooting has been a struggle for them this year, as they will come into this game shooting an abysmal 28.1% from deep. 

On defense A&M could not defend the 3 against ASU, allowing the Hornets to shoot 8-17 from deep. They gave up 72 points in the game, and lost the turnover battle by 6. On the season the Bulldogs are allowing 68.6 points per game.

The Alcorn State Braves won their last matchup against Mississippi Valley State after having lost their previous three. The Braves were not great offensively, shooting 43.6% from the field and only converting on 6 of 21 three point attempts. Troymain Crosby led the way for Alcorn State with 22 points. He leads the team with 19.8 of their 65.1 points per game this season. 

Alcorn State only conceded 56 points, but allowed a poor MVS team to convert 50% of their shots and 45% from deep. They did however force a whopping 22 turnovers, and won the rebound battle by 5. Alcorn State is allowing an average of 76.8 points per game on the year. 

Alabama A&M is 4-4 ATS this year, and 1-2 ATS on the road. The Bulldogs have lost their last 3 road games. Alcorn State is 6-5 ATS this year, and 1-2 ATS at home. The Braves have lost their last 3 at home. 

Alcorn State is coming off a win on the road against MVS, but that was a bad team with only 1 win on the year.  Alabama A&M lost their last game after blowing a second half lead and never recovering. Look for the Bulldogs to have a better game shooting in this one. Alabama A&M have been a better defensive team this year and should be able to limit Troymain Crosby's opportunities. Jalen Johnson will be able to bounce back against a poor Braves defense. Give me Alabama A&M to cover.
