The contest between Bellarmine and the Murray State Racers on Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Bellarmine falling 78-59 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one.
Meanwhile, the Gaels had enough points to win and then some against the Southern Utah Thunderbirds on Monday, taking their matchup 70-51. Four players on Saint Mary’s scored in the double digits: guard Tommy Kuhse (17), guard Logan Johnson (13), guard Alex Ducas (12), and forward Dan Fotu (12).
Bellarmine is the clear underdog, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 0-2 ATS when expected to lose.
Bellarmine’s defeat took them down to 0-2 while Saint Mary’s’ win pulled them up to 3-0. We’ll see if Bellarmine can steal the Gaels’ luck or if Saint Mary’s records another victory instead.
