North Dakota @ Nebraska Omaha

What to Know

A Summit battle is on tap between the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks and the North Dakota Fighting Hawks at 8 p.m. ET Thursday at Baxter Arena. The teams split their matchups last year, with Nebraska Omaha winning the first 72-62 at home on the road and North Dakota taking the second 81-69.

It’s hard to picture a worse loss than the 107-62 bruising that the Mavericks suffered against the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles on Saturday.

Meanwhile, it looks like North Dakota must have gotten on Santa’s naughty list since the squad didn’t end up with the victory they were expected to receive two weeks ago. They came up short against the North Dakota State Bison, falling 86-76.

Nebraska Omaha is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. At 2-4 against the spread at home, they are no cash cow. That said, North Dakota isn’t so hot on the road, where they are 0-5.

The losses put the Mavericks at 2-12 and the Fighting Hawks at 4-10. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: Nebraska Omaha is 355th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 82.2 on average. North Dakota has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 48.50% from the floor on average, which is the 352nd highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
