Current Records: VMI 1-2; Longwood 1-2

What to Know

The VMI Keydets will hit the road for the second straight game as they head to Willett Hall at 5 p.m. ET Friday. Both teams looked pretty sloppy on the offensive side of the ball the last time they faced off, scoring just zero points combined.

VMI was close but no cigar on Sunday as they fell 75-71 to the Davidson Wildcats. Despite the loss, the Keydets got a solid performance out of Taeshaud Jackson II, who had 16 points along with eight boards.

Meanwhile, the Longwood Lancers were completely in charge on Sunday, breezing past the Pfeiffer Falcons 100-68 at home.

VMI have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the ten-point spread they are up against. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 2-0 against the spread when expected to lose.

Longwood's win lifted them to 1-2 while VMI's defeat dropped them down to 1-2. We'll see if Longwood can repeat their recent success or if VMI bounces back and reverse their fortune.
