What to Know

The Illinois-Chicago Flames are 3-10 against the Northern Kentucky Norse since January of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Saturday. Illinois-Chicago is on the road again on Saturday and plays against NKU at 2 p.m. ET Jan. 8 at BB&T Arena. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

On Thursday, the Flames lost to the Wright State Raiders on the road by a decisive 90-72 margin.

Meanwhile, the Norse were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Saturday as they fell 61-55 to the Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers.

Illinois-Chicago is now 4-8 while NKU sits at 5-8. Two stats to keep an eye on: Illinois-Chicago has allowed their opponents to shoot 46.20% from the floor on average, which is the 23rd highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. NKU has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 40% percent of their shots, which is the 19th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
