What to Know
The Belmont Bruins will take on the Samford Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday at Curb Event Center. Belmont is the favorite here -- although they were the favorites in their last contest, too, so the odds might count for a little less.
The Bruins had to hit the road for their first game, and unfortunately the road hit them back. In a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 18 turnovers, the Illinois State Redbirds took down Belmont 79-72. Four players on the Bruins scored in the double digits: C Nick Muszynski (20), G Grayson Murphy (17), G Adam Kunkel (13), and G Nick Hopkins (12).
Meanwhile, everything went Samford's way against the Kentucky Wesleyan as they made off with a 68-42 win.
Samford's victory lifted them to 1-1 while Belmont's loss dropped them down to 0-1. A couple last-season offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Belmont was 64th best (top 1%) in points per game, finishing the 2018 season with 86.9 on average. But Samford was even better: they ranked 48th in college basketball in points per game, closing the year with 78.3 on average (top 10%). We'll see if that edge gives Samford a route to victory.
