On the other side of this matchup is the Morehead State Eagles who sit with a 22-10 record overall and they have won two games in a row.

There are three different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game.
The last time these two teams faced off it was a low scoring game, and these are both defenses that can be very stingy. In this game look for both defenses to lock down, and that will lead to this game being lower scoring. Back the under to cash.
