What to Know
The California Baptist Lancers will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will take on the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks in a holiday battle at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday at CBU Events Center. The Lancers are out to keep their eight-game home win streak alive.
California Baptist found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 84-60 punch to the gut against the Arizona Wildcats this past Saturday. California Baptist was surely aware of their 27.5-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result. Guard Taran Armstrong had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only nine points on 4-for-10 shooting and turning the ball over four times in his 34 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, Southeast Missouri State was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 83-77 to the Pepperdine Waves.
California Baptist is the favorite in this one, with an expected 9.5-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Saturday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
The losses put California Baptist at 8-3 and the Redhawks at 5-7. The Lancers are 1-1 after losses this season, Southeast Missouri State 2-4.
