What to Know

The NW State Demons will square off against the SMU Mustangs on the road at 8 p.m. ET on Monday at Moody Coliseum. NW State will be strutting in after a victory while the Mustangs will be stumbling in from a defeat.

NW State took their matchup against the Champion Christian Tigers this past Saturday by a conclusive 91-62 score.

Meanwhile, SMU suffered a grim 86-63 defeat to the Oregon Ducks this past Friday. Emmanuel Bandoumel (14 points) was the top scorer for SMU.

NW State have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 20.50 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.

The Demons found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 77-51 punch to the gut against the Mustangs when the teams previously met two seasons ago. Can NW State avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
