On the other side of this matchup is the Richmond Spiders who sit with a 13-8 record overall but they have lost three games in a row. In the last game against Duquesne, the offense could only manage 62 points and that led to a five point victory. Richmond on the season is averaging 75 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.2 points per game. Richmond is shooting 47.4 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from behind the three point line.
