What to Know

The Saint Mary's Gaels will stay at home another game and welcome the Texas Southern Tigers at 10 p.m. ET Nov. 12 at University Credit Union Pavilion. The Gaels earned an 82-70 win in their most recent contest against Texas Southern in December of last year.

Saint Mary's strolled past the Prairie View A&M Panthers with points to spare last Tuesday, taking the matchup 87-68.

Meanwhile, the game between the Tigers and the Oregon Ducks last week was not a total blowout, but with Texas Southern falling 83-66 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. The losing side was boosted by forward John Walker III, who had 19 points along with six rebounds.

Saint Mary's is the favorite in this one, with an expected 16.5-point margin of victory. Those taking them against the spread are banking on an outcome similar to that of the team's contest last Tuesday, where they covered an 18-point spread.

Saint Mary's' victory lifted them to 1-0 while Texas Southern's defeat dropped them down to 0-1. We'll see if Saint Mary's can repeat their recent success or if the Tigers bounce back and reverse their fortune.
