What to Know
Get ready for an SWAC battle as the Southern Jaguars and the Jackson State Tigers will face off at 8:30 p.m. ET on Monday at Williams Center. Both teams looked pretty sloppy on the offensive side of the ball the last time they faced off, scoring just 110 points combined.
Southern was close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 68-64 to the Alcorn State Braves.
Meanwhile, Jackson State came up short against the Grambling Tigers this past Saturday, falling 73-64.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Jaguars are expected to win a tight contest. Those burned by picking them against the spread this past Saturday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
The losses put Southern at 11-9 and Jackson State at 4-15. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Southern has allowed their opponents to shoot 45.50% from the floor on average, which is the 42nd highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. Jackson State has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 37.90% percent of their shots, which is the 354th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
