Jacksonville State Blew It Last Game
Jacksonville State sits with a 1-1 record and they blew the last game. Jacksonville State faced off against Utah Tech, and they were able to get into overtime, but it wasn’t enough as they ended up losing by two. The Gamecocks shot 41.1 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from behind the three point line. They hit five of 15 shots from deep and they are going to need to be more dynamic with the shooting. The Gamecocks were led by KyKy Tandy who put up 23 points.
Could be A Long Year for West Virginia
West Virginia went through a lot this offseason, and they can’t have a whole lot of confidence heading into this game. In the last game against Monmouth, the offense scored 65 points, but the defense gave up 73 points and they ended up losing by eight. West Virginia shot only 31.3 percent from the field and 21.9 percent from behind the three point line. The Mountaineers didn’t really have a star and it was four different players that finished with at least 10 points.
Shane’s Free Pick
There are better games on the board to bet but if you are going to bet this game, the play has to be with Jacksonville State. West Virginia’s offense wasn’t elite in the last game, and they are going to struggle to score again here. Jacksonville State will hit a couple more three point shots and that will be the difference as Jacksonville State will keep it close. Back Jacksonville State against the spread.
