Southern @ Bethune-Cookman
Current Records: Southern 8-7; Bethune-Cookman 3-11
What to Know
Get ready for an SWAC battle as the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats and the Southern Jaguars will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday at Moore Gym. Southern should still be riding high after a win, while Bethune-Cookman will be looking to regain their footing.
The Wildcats were close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 68-66 to the Grambling Tigers. The contest was as close as the oddsmakers predicted, but Bethune-Cookman had been the slight favorite coming in.
Meanwhile, Southern didn’t have too much trouble with the Florida A&M Rattlers on the road this past Saturday as they won 80-66.
Bethune-Cookman is now 3-11 while the Jaguars sit at 8-7. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Wildcats have only been able to knock down 39.90% percent of their shots, which is the 18th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Southern has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 47% from the floor on average, which is the seventh highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
