What to Know

The New Jersey Tech Highlanders will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will square off against the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights at 2 p.m. ET Wednesday at Wellness and Events Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

The contest between New Jersey Tech and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights last week was not particularly close, with the Highlanders falling 75-61. The top scorer for New Jersey Tech was Dylan O'Hearn (20 points).

Meanwhile, Fairleigh Dickinson lost to the St. John's Red Storm on the road by a decisive 87-74 margin. Guard Brandon Rush wasn't much of a difference maker for Fairleigh Dickinson; Rush finished with 14 points on 5-for-17 shooting and turned the ball over five times in his 34 minutes on the court.

New Jersey Tech is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.

The Highlanders are now 1-2 while the Knights sit at 0-3. Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: New Jersey Tech has only been able to knock down 38.60% percent of their shots, which is the 26th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Fairleigh Dickinson has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 34.50% percent of their shots, which is the 353rd lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It could be a slow afternoon.
