North Carolina Central @ The Citadel

Current Records: North Carolina Central 3-6; The Citadel 4-3

What to Know

The The Citadel Bulldogs will be returning home after a three-game road trip. They will take on the North Carolina Central Eagles at 7 p.m. ET Monday at McAlister Field House. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.

The Citadel came up short against the UNC-Asheville Bulldogs last Wednesday, falling 65-58.

Meanwhile, North Carolina Central lost to UNC-Asheville on the road by a decisive 82-66 margin.

The Citadel is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

The Citadel is now 4-3 while the Eagles sit at 3-6. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The Citadel is stumbling into the game with the fourth fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.1 on average. North Carolina Central has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 48th worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 15.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
