The Eastern Kentucky Colonels and Southeast Missouri State Redhawks face off on Monday afternoon in a college basketball showdown at the Show Me Center.
These two teams faced off on Saturday and it was Southeast Missouri State that was able to come away with the 94-72 victory. Chris Harris was the best player for Southeast Missouri State and he put up 18 points. Michael Moreno was the best player for Eastern Kentucky finishing with 19 points
The Eastern Kentucky Colonels come into this game with an 18-6 record overall and their loss was pretty shocking. The defense gave up 94 points in that game and in this game the defense is going to need to find a way to have a lot more success.Eastern Kentucky is averaging 82.5 points per game while their defense is giving up 74.5 points per game. Forward Tre King has been the best player for Eastern Kentucky averaging 15.4 points while shooting 38.3 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks sitting with a 9-14 record overall but they have won two games in a row. Overall, Southeast Missouri State is averaging 68.8 points per game so their scoring outburst on Saturday was a bit surprising. The defense at times has been an issue giving up 71.2 points per game.

Eastern Kentucky is 16-6 against the spread in their last 22 games overall. Eastern Kentucky is 25-10-2 against the spread in their last 37 games overall. The home team is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings played between the two squads.
I expect Southeast MIssouri State is going to run up the score again and Estern Kentucky will also find all kinds of offensive success. Look for both teams to run up the score and for the over to cash with ease.
