What to Know
The Stanford Cardinal will take on the North Carolina A&T Aggies at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday at home. Both teams were wiped off the court in their previous games and will be looking to bounce back in a big way.
The Cardinal took a serious blow against the Baylor Bears this past Saturday, falling 86-48.
Meanwhile, a win for North Carolina A&T just wasn't in the stars this past Saturday as the squad never even grasped a temporary lead. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 87-63 walloping at the Wake Forest Demon Deacons' hands. North Carolina A&T was surely aware of their 15.5-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result. Guard Milton Matthews put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 15 points in addition to six boards.
The Cardinal are the favorite in this one, with an expected 16.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-3 against the spread when favored.
The losses put Stanford at 3-2 and North Carolina A&T at 1-4. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Stanford has allowed their opponents to shoot 48.90% from the floor on average, which is the 14th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Aggies have experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 39.20% percent of their shots, which is the 48th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
