The Nicholls State Colonels and Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown in the Southland Tournament at Merrell Center. When these two teams faced off on March 2nd it was Nicholls State that came away with the 86-75 victory.
Jitaurious Gordon was the top player for Nicholls State scoring 21 points. The Islanders had four different players that scored at least 10 points.
The Nicholls State Colonels come into this game with a 22-10 record overall and they have won each of their last two games. In the last game against New Orleans, the offense was elite scoring 92 points, and that was enough to win by seven points. The last loss came against Southeastern three games ago, and in that game the defense gave up 82 points. Nicholls State is averaging 79.6 points while their defense is giving up 71.4 points per game. Guard Ty Gordon has been the top player for the Colonels averaging 21.6 points while shooting 46.4 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders who sit with a 21-11 record and they have won two games in a row. In the last game against Houston Baptist on Thursday the offense was strong scoring 75 points, and that was enough to come away with the easy victory. Two games ago against UIW, they were able to win 77-68. As a team the Islanders are averaging 64.8 points while their defense is giving up 71.5 points per game. The best player for Corpus Christi has been Isaac Mushila who is averaging 14.1 points while shooting 53.8 percent from the field and 29.6 percent from behind the three point line. In this game if they want to win this game they are going to need the defense to be good.
The last time these two teams faced off the Corpus Christi defense was an issue, and I expect that will be the case again. I also believe that Nicholls State is also going ot run up the score, and that will lead to this game being a shootout. Back the over to cash.
