What to Know

The Winthrop Eagles have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Middle Tenn. Blue Raiders at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Murphy Athletic Center. Winthrop won't have the home-court advantage, but they do enjoy a 5.5-point advantage in the spread.

The Eagles came out on top in a nail-biter against the Mercer Bears this past Saturday, sneaking past 88-85.

Meanwhile, everything went Middle Tenn.'s way against the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats last week as they made off with a 71-51 win. It should come as no surprise that the experts had more or less unanimously put their money on Middle Tenn.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 2-0. Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
