Wagner Rundown: Seahawks Stretch of Luck in Danger

Wagner enters at 16-15 after defeating Merrimack in the NEC Final, 54-47. The Seahawks outscored the Warriors in both periods to pick up the victory, and they’ll look to replicate that effort here against the Bison. Wagner is scoring 63.9 points per game, on 39.1% shooting, while allowing 62.1 ppg, and they’re 6-4 over their previous ten games.

Howard Rundown: Bison Put In a Manageable Position

Howard comes in at 18-16 after defeating Delaware State in the MEAC Final by three, 70-67. The Bison outplayed the Hornets down the stretch to advance to the field, and they’ll look to qualify here versus the Seahawks. HU is scoring 75.1 points per game, on 45.1% shooting, while allowing 74.4 ppg, and they’re 8-2 over their previous ten games.

Wagner vs Howard Prediction: Bison to Keep Rumbling in Dayton

Wagner did their part by winning the Northeast conference tournament, but they may be a little outmatched here against a hot Howard team. The Bison have won nine of their last eleven games, with one of those coming to a strong Norfolk State team on the road, so I like rolling with their momentum here. HU will also carry a noticeable offensive advantage coming into this game, so if the Seahawks are unable to rely on the slow-paced NEC style of play, it may be tough for them to keep up. Back Howard for this First Four matchup, and give the Under a look in case Wagner's pace makes it low-scoring.
