What to Know
The NW State Demons have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks and are hoping to record their first victory since Nov. 21 of 2017. They will face off against one another at 3 p.m. ET on Monday at Thomas Assembly Center. Louisiana-Monroe should still be feeling good after a win, while the Demons will be looking to get back in the win column.
NW State received a tough blow on Friday as they fell 83-64 to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs.
Meanwhile, Louisiana-Monroe took their contest at home on Tuesday with ease, bagging a 114-59 win over the Champion Christian Tigers.
NW State is now 1-4 while Louisiana-Monroe sits at 1-2. A pair of defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Demons have allowed their opponents to shoot 49.50% from the floor on average, which is the ninth highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Warhawks have experienced some struggles of their own as they are fourth worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 84.3 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
