St. Peter’s Gets First Win
The St. Peter’s Peacocks will look to build on their 75-48 win over NJIT in their last matchup. Corey Washington leads St. Peter’s in scoring with 14.5 PPG along with 7 RPG and 2 SPG while Latrell Reid has 12 PPG with a team-high 3 APG. Michael Houge has 10.5 PPG with 4.5 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for the Peacocks up to this point in the year.

Fairleigh Dickinson Takes First Loss Of Season
The Fairleigh Dickinson Knights will be looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season after an 85-55 loss to Seton Hall last time out. Jo’el Emanuel leads FDU in scoring with 14.7 PPG along with 6.3 RPG while Ansley Almonor has 13 PPG with 5 RPG. DeVante Jamison has 10 PPG with 4 RPG and a team-high 4 APG as well this season to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for the Knights so far this season. Joe Munden Jr. also has 9.7 PPG with 3 RPG as well on the year while Sean Moore also has 6.3 RPG as well this season. As a team, Fairleigh Dickinson is averaging 84.7 PPG on 42.8% shooting from the field, 33.7% from three and 68.8% from the foul line this season.
I’m rolling with St. Peter’s here. The cap for me is simple here. It’s a clash of styles as St. Peter’s wants to play slow while FDU wants to run and gun, but neither offense shoots the ball all that well. Except, St. Peter’s is one of the best free throw shooting teams in the country, and in a game that I think comes down to the wire, I want the team that’s going to hit their shots at the line. Give me St. Peter’s here.
