Louisiana Monroe Warhawks Preview

Louisiana Monroe comes in at 0-1 after losing to Houston on the road in their season opener, 84-31. The Warhawks were no match for the Cougars, and they’ll seek different results here against the Chippewas. UL-Monroe is scoring 31.0 points per game, on 28.2% shooting, while allowing 84.0 ppg.


ULM Player Notes

• No Warhawk was able to reach double figures, as they were smothered by the rugged Houston defense.

• Veteran guard Savion Gallion led the team in scoring with just 8 points on 3/6 shooting versus the Cougars.

• Returning leading scorer Tyreke Locure (14.4 ppg) was held in check by the Cougs, only finishing with 7 points on 2/8 shooting.

Corey’s Free Pick

Despite having to flip the map to head all the way up to Michigan, I like the advantages Louisiana-Monroe holds, with the main one being guard play. Strong backcourt play can go a long way in the college game, and after being hounded by Houston for 40 minutes, you can bet they show some urgency on the offensive end here against CMU. Let’s spot Louisiana-Monroe the points for this MAC/SBC Challenge matchup.
