What to Know
The VMI Keydets have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the The Citadel Bulldogs at 3:35 p.m. ET Feb. 12 at Cameron Hall. VMI has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency.
The Mercer Bears typically have all the answers at home, but on Thursday the Keydets proved too difficult a challenge. VMI secured an 85-79 W over the Bears.
Meanwhile, The Citadel found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 86-66 punch to the gut against the UNCG Spartans on Thursday.
VMI’s win brought them up to 15-10 while The Citadel’s defeat pulled them down to 10-13. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Keydets are second worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only ten on average. The Bulldogs have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 23rd fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.8 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
