Troy Trojans

The Trojans posted an 11-8 run over their first 19 games this year, then hit a win streak over Texas State, South Alabama, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Marshall and Kent State. Since then it’s been a 1-2 run with a pair of losses to Arkansas State around a win versus LA-Monroe.

In the rematch versus Arkansas State on Thursday, the Trojans fell behind on a 39-28 first half. Troy got a little better from there on a 43-40 second-half run but still lost 79-71. Victor Valdes and Tayton Conerway each scored a team-high 16 points in the losing effort.

LA-Monroe Warhawks

Over on the Warhawks’ side, they got off to a rough 4-12 start this season. LA-Monroe has since gone 7-3 over their last 10 games though, beating Old Dominion, South Alabama, Arkansas State, Coastal Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Southern Miss and Louisiana in that time.

In their last matchup versus Louisiana back on Thursday, the Warhawks held a slim 32-30 edge going into the second half. LA-Monroe hit a 34-29 run the rest of the way, powering out a nice win 66-59. Nika Metskhvarishvili topped the team with 17 points and eight rebounds.


I’ll try LA-Monroe here. We should have a fun matchup regardless, though. The Warhawks got out-rebounded 41-37 and coughed up 14 turnovers in their latest win over Louisiana but got the victory thanks to a solid defensive effort. LA-Monroe needs a shot in the arm on the scoreboard though. They’ve been below 69 points in three straight games.

One of those games was a rough 85-57 blowout road loss to Troy the last time these teams met on February 17. LA-Monroe shot a rough 32.3 percent from the field in that one while giving up 51.6 percent on the other side, but the rebounding (45) was solid. That said, the Warhawks will need to get the shots falling early in this rematch if they want to get some revenge.
