What to Know
The NW State Demons haven’t won a game against the Nicholls State Colonels since Jan. 15 of 2020, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Thursday. NW State and Nicholls State will face off in a Southland battle at 8 p.m. ET at David R. Stopher Gym. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.
The Demons were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Saturday as they fell 79-74 to the Southeastern Louisiana Lions.
Meanwhile, the contest between the Colonels and the New Orleans Privateers on Saturday was not particularly close, with Nicholls State falling 78-66.
NW State is the clear underdog, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
NW State ended up a good deal behind Nicholls State when they played when the two teams previously met in March of last year, losing 88-76. The defeat knocked the Demons out of the playoffs, so expect them to come at Nicholls State with a vengeful fire.
