What to Know
The Air Force Falcons will be playing at home against the Tarleton State Texans at 3:30 p.m. ET Sunday. The Falcons are out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
Air Force made easy work of the Arkansas State Red Wolves two weeks ago and carried off an 80-55 win. Air Force got double-digit scores from four players: guard Jake Heidbreder (16), forward Corbin Green (15), forward Rytis Petraitis (11), and guard Camden Vander Zwaag (10).
Meanwhile, Tarleton State found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 75-49 punch to the gut against the UCF Knights last week. The top scorer for Tarleton State was guard Shakur Daniel (15 points).
Barring any buzzer beaters, Air Force is expected to win a tight contest. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (5-2), so they might be worth a quick bet.
Air Force's victory lifted them to 7-4 while Tarleton State's loss dropped them down to 5-5. In Air Force's win, Rytis Petraitis had 11 points and five assists and Jake Heidbreder had 16 points. We'll see if the Texans have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
