Wright State @ George Washington
Current Records: Wright State 1-2; George Washington 1-4
What to Know
The George Washington Colonials will take on the Wright State Raiders at 2:30 p.m. ET Monday at Community School of Naples. Neither of those teams managed to put together many points in their previous contests, so their meeting could be a low-scoring affair.
The contest between the Colonials and the UMass Lowell River Hawks this past Friday was not a total blowout, but with George Washington falling 67-56 at home, it was darn close to turning into one.
Meanwhile, Wright State took a serious blow against the Purdue Boilermakers last week, falling 96-52. The Raiders' defeat shouldn't obscure the performances of Tanner Holden, who had 17 points in addition to seven rebounds, and Trey Calvin, who had 21 points.
George Washington is expected to lose this next one by 8. Now might not be the best time to take George Washington against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past three consecutive games.
George Washington is now 1-4 while Wright State sits at 1-2. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Colonials are 27th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 61.8 on average. The Raiders have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 11th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 81.7 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
