Fairfield @ Massachusetts
Current Records: Fairfield 8-3; Massachusetts 6-5
What to Know
The Fairfield Stags are on the road again Sunday and play against the Massachusetts Minutemen at 1 p.m. ET Dec. 19 at William D. Mullins Center. The Stags should still be feeling good after a victory, while UMass will be looking to get back in the win column.
Fairfield strolled past the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights with points to spare this past Wednesday, taking the game 72-54.
Meanwhile, UMass came up short against the North Texas Mean Green two weeks ago, falling 66-57. UMass got double-digit scores from four players: guard Noah Fernandes (13), guard C.J. Kelly (13), forward Greg Jones (12), and guard Rich Kelly (10).
Fairfield is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a five-game streak of ATS wins.
The Stags are now 8-3 while the Minutemen sit at 6-5. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Fairfield enters the matchup with a 48.70% field goal percentage, good for 25th best in college basketball. Less enviably, UMass has allowed their opponents to shoot 48.50% from the floor on average, which is the 350th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball.
