The Bellarmine Knights come into this game with a 13-7 record overall but they struggled to end the season losing each of their last two games. Before that they had won eight games in a row, and in this game the defense is going to need to be better. Bellarimine is averaging 72.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 68.3 points per game. Bellarmine is shooting 50.1 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from behind the three point line. Guard Pedro Bradshaw has been the best player for Bellarmine and coming into this game he is averaging 15.4 points while shooting 34.1 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Army Black Knights who sit with a 12-9 record overall and coming into this game they have won two of their last three games. The one loss during that stretch was in their last game against Loyola Maryland, a game they lost by four points.

The over is 11-5-1 in Bellarmine’s last 17 games overall. Army is 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games overall.
Bellarmine has been involved in a lot of over games and there is no reason to believe it’s going to be much different in this game. Look for a fast-paced game by both teams and for this one to go well over the posted total.
