ANDREW’S FREE ALCORN STATE VS MS VALLEY STATE PREDICTION
I’ll take a stab on MS Valley State. Granted, there’s not much to get excited about here, but if the Delta Devils are going to get a victory this isn’t a bad spot to find it. MS Valley State didn’t play horrifically against Jackson State in their last outing, hitting 41.7 percent from the field and 40.9 percent (9-of-22) from outside. The 45-30 rebounding deficit hurt however, as did the 11 turnovers. That makes 146 combined points in the last two games for MS Valley State, but they’re also giving up quite a bit on the other side these days. Alcorn State shouldn’t have a ton of issues scoring themselves, so I like this one to be a fairly high-total finish.
