What to Know

The Grambling Tigers are on the road again Sunday and play against the Iowa State Cyclones at 6 p.m. ET Nov. 21 at James H. Hilton Coliseum. Iowa State should still be feeling good after a victory, while the Tigers will be looking to get back in the win column.

Grambling has to be hurting after a devastating 86-61 loss at the hands of the New Mexico Lobos last week. Guard Danya Kingsby (20 points) was the top scorer for Grambling.

Meanwhile, Iowa State bagged a 68-60 win over the Alabama State Hornets last Tuesday. Iowa State's guard Izaiah Brockington looked sharp as he posted a double-double on 23 points and 13 rebounds.

The Tigers are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They have failed bettors playing the spread in all their past three games, so buyers beware.

Grambling is now 0-3 while the Cyclones sit at a mirror-image 3-0. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Grambling is stumbling into the matchup with the 357th most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 21.3 on average. To make matters even worse for the Tigers, Iowa State comes into the contest boasting the 20th most takeaways per game in college basketball at 20.3. So the cards are definitely stacked in Iowa State's favor.
