The Rice Owls and Indiana State Sycamores face off on Tuesday night in a college basketball showdown at the Dollar Loan Center. 

Indiana State Coming Off Impressive Victory 

Indiana State comes into this game with a 2-1 record overall and they were blown out in the last game. Indiana State faced off against IUPUI and they were able to secure the 96-57 victory. At halftime, they were up 48-21 and they never looked back. Robbie Avila put up 16 points, five assists, and four rebounds. Indiana State on the season is averaging 88.7 points while their defense is giving up 73 points per game. The offense is ranked 33rd and they are going to need to run up the score here. 

Rice Looks for Their Second Win

Rice opened up their season with a victory over St. Thomas, but since that point they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against Rice the offense only managed 64 points and they ended up losing by 16 points to the Texas Longhorns. Rice on the season is averaging 80.3 points while their defense is giving up 75.3 points per game. The offense is ranked 105th, but in the last game they are going to need to find a way to get the defense to step up. Anthoy Selden is averaging 13 points while shooting 56.5 percent from the field. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Indiana State scored 96 points in the last game and this Rice defense has some big issues. Look for Indiana State to have no issue running up the score. Rice’s offense is decent, but I don’t think they are elite and in the last game they only put up 64 points. Indiana State is going to find success here, and that is going to be the difference as Indiana  State is going to get the job done. Back Indiana State against the spread.
