Florida A&M @ Cincinnati
Current Records: Florida A&M 2-6; Cincinnati 7-3
What to Know
The Florida A&M Rattlers are on the road again Tuesday and play against the Cincinnati Bearcats at 7 p.m. ET Dec. 14 at Fifth Third Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
The Rattlers came up short against the Akron Zips on Sunday, falling 73-66.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati has to be hurting after a devastating 83-63 defeat at the hands of the Xavier Musketeers this past Saturday. Guard Mika Adams-Woods had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 30 minutes but putting up just four points on 2-for-11 shooting.
Florida A&M have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 19 point spread they are up against. Those who got lucky with them against the spread on Sunday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Florida A&M is now 2-6 while Cincinnati sits at 7-3. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Florida A&M has only been able to knock down 40.90% percent of their shots, which is the 46th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. The Bearcats' defense has more to brag about, as they they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 36.40%, which places them eighth in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
