The FIU Panthers are averaging 72.3 points per game, 74.6 points against per game, 31.7 rebounds per game, and 12.3 assists per game. Denver Jones (questionable) has led the Panthers this season with 19.6 points per game, 3.6 rebounds per game, and 2.0 assists per game. FIU is shooting 46.8% from the field, 70.6% on free throws, and 32.2% on three pointers this year.

Louisiana Tech Preview

The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs are 13-16 (6-12) this season after they lost to Middle Tennessee by a score of 63-49 in their last game. Louisiana Tech shot 27.5% from the field and recorded 42 rebounds in the loss. The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs are averaging 72.7 points per game, 69.6 points against per game, 34.6 rebounds per game, and 13 assists per game. Cobe Williams has led the Bulldogs this season with 18.8 points per game, 4.1 assists per game, and 3.5 rebounds per game. Louisiana Tech is shooting 44.4% from the field, 72.7% on free throws, and 34.9% on three pointers this year.


FIU is 8-22-1 ATS in their last 31 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games. The under is 7-3 in FIU’s last 10 road games. Louisiana Tech is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games. The over is 5-1 in Louisiana Tech’s last 6 home games. The home team is 9-2 ATS in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.


These two teams have not found much success this season and come into this game on losing streaks, but Louisiana Tech will have the home court advantage in this one. Both teams are scoring about the same points per game, but Louisiana Tech is the better defensive team. FIU has allowed 95, 87, 69, and 85 points in their last four games. I am going to take Louisiana Tech at home against this poor FIU defense.
