What to Know

The Bryant Bulldogs haven't won a matchup against the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers since Feb. 23 of 2019, but they'll be looking to end the drought Saturday. Bryant and Mount St. Mary's will face off in a Northeast battle at 1 p.m. ET at Chace Athletic Center. The Mountaineers will be strutting in after a win while the Bulldogs will be stumbling in from a loss.

Bryant was close but no cigar last Thursday as they fell 84-81 to the Wagner Seahawks.

Meanwhile, Mount St. Mary's was able to grind out a solid victory over the St. Francis (N.Y.) Terriers on Saturday, winning 69-61.

Bryant is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 2-4 against the spread when favored.

The Bulldogs are now 6-8 while the Mountaineers sit at 5-9. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: Bryant is stumbling into the game with the 25th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 76.1 on average. Mount St. Mary's has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 46% from the floor on average, which is the 26th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
