What to Know
The IUPUI Jaguars haven’t won a contest against the Wright State Raiders since Feb. 23 of 2018, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Saturday. IUPUI and Wright State will face off in a Horizon League battle at 2 p.m. ET at Ervin J. Nutter Center. The Raiders will be strutting in after a win while IUPUI will be stumbling in from a loss.
Two weeks ago, IUPUI got maybe a little too into the holiday spirit, gifting the Morehead State Eagles an easy 80-52 victory.
Meanwhile, Wright State had enough points to win and then some against the Illinois-Chicago Flames on Thursday, taking their matchup 90-72.
The Jaguars are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past five games.
IUPUI is now 1-10 while the Raiders sit at 7-7. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: IUPUI is 358th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 50.2 on average. Wright State has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 33rd most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 75.4 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
