What to Know
The Grambling Tigers will be returning home after a five-game road trip. Grambling and the Texas Southern Tigers will face off in an SWAC battle at 8:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at Assembly Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with Grambling winning the first 78-72 on the road and Texas Southern taking the second 75-73.
Grambling’s 2021 ended with a 75-64 loss against the Southern Illinois Salukis last Tuesday. Guard Cameron Christon had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 27 minutes but putting up just nine points on 3-for-11 shooting.
Meanwhile, the contest between Texas Southern and the Southern Jaguars on Monday was not a total blowout, but with Texas Southern falling 63-50 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one.
Grambling is expected to lose this next one by 6.5. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Grambling is now 3-10 while Texas Southern sits at 2-8. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Grambling is fourth worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 16.6 on average. Texas Southern has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the fifth fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.3 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
