What to Know

The Belmont Bruins are 8-0 against the Eastern Illinois Panthers since January of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. Belmont and EIU will face off in an Ohio Valley battle at 4:30 p.m. ET at Lantz Arena. The Bruins won both of their matches against EIU last season (79-66 and 89-61) and are aiming for the same result this time around.

Belmont made easy work of the Bethel (IN) Pilots last week and carried off a 115-86 win.

Meanwhile, EIU’s 2021 ended with a 63-50 loss against the Morehead State Eagles on Wednesday.

Belmont’s victory brought them up to 10-3 while the Panthers’ defeat pulled them down to 2-12. Two offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Bruins rank 25th in college basketball when it comes to field goal percentage, with 48.70% on the season. Less enviably, EIU is stumbling into the game with the 355th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 56.7 on average.
