In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Saint Josephs at Saint Louis.
The Saint Joseph’s Hawks will be looking forward to this one because if they win, they will get to .500 once again. The team is averaging 70.5 points per game on 41.4% shooting from the floor while allowing 72.5 points on 43.6% shooting. Charlie Brown Jr. is the team’s leading scorer with 19.6 points per game and 4.7 rebounds while Lamarr Kimble is adding 16.3 points per game and 2.6 assists.
The St. Louis Billikens, on the other side, are on a 5-game winning streak. They are averaging 67.2 points per game on 41.7% shooting while allowing 62.5 points on 40.6% shooting. Their biggest strength is their defense and they have shown so far that they can do just enough on offense to see off their opponents. Javon Bess is averaging 15.4 points and 7.1 rebounds while Tramaine Isabell Jr. is averaging 11.6 points and three assists.
The Hawks are shooting just 37% from the floor and losing by an average of 13 points in their last 5 games. I expect to shoot even worse percentage in the upcoming game because St. Louis has the ability to shut them down.
