Texas Southern @ Air Force
Current Records: Texas Southern 0-3; Air Force 1-1
What to Know
The Texas Southern Tigers will face off against the Air Force Falcons on the road at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday at Clune Arena. The Falcons should still be riding high after a victory, while Texas Southern will be looking to get back in the win column.
Texas Southern came up short against the Washington Huskies on Monday, falling 72-65. One thing holding the Tigers back was the mediocre play of guard PJ Henry, who did not have his best game: he finished with ten points on 5-for-15 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, Air Force escaped with a win this past Saturday against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane by the margin of a single free throw, 59-58.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Texas Southern is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
Texas Southern is now 0-3 while the Falcons sit at 1-1. A pair of last-season offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Tigers are 40th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 73.9 on average. Air Force experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the fifth fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 58.7 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
