What to Know
The NC State Wolfpack will take on the #16 Memphis Tigers at 4 p.m. ET on Thursday at Barclays Center. Both of these red-hot teams will try to put the other on ice to keep their winning streaks alive.
In a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 31 turnovers, NC State took down the Little Rock Trojans 74-58 on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Memphis escaped with a win against the Ole Miss Rebels by the margin of a single free throw, 87-86. Among those leading the charge for the Tigers was F Precious Achiuwa, who posted a double-double on 25 points and 11 boards.
Barring any buzzer beaters, NC State are expected to win a tight contest. They covered a 15-point spread on Saturday, so bettors might be thinking that will translate to further success against a lower spread.
Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 5-1. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: NC State comes into the game boasting the 17th most points per game in the league at 84.5. But Memphis is even better: they enter the contest with 86.7 points per game on average, good for 10th best in college basketball. We'll see if that edge gives the Tigers a route to victory.
