What to Know

The Wagner Seahawks won both of their matches against the St. Francis (N.Y.) Terriers last season (74-67 and 84-81) and are aiming for the same result Saturday. Wagner and St. Francis (N.Y.) will face off in a Northeast battle at 1 p.m. ET at Spiro Sports Center. The Seahawks should still be riding high after a victory, while St. Francis (N.Y.) will be looking to right the ship.

The Bryant Bulldogs typically have all the answers at home, but last Thursday Wagner proved too difficult a challenge. Wagner sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with an 84-81 win.

Meanwhile, the Terriers came up short against the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers on Saturday, falling 69-61.

Wagner is the favorite in this one, with an expected 16.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

The Seahawks' win brought them up to 8-2 while St. Francis (N.Y.)'s defeat pulled them down to 4-11. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: Wagner comes into the contest boasting the 23rd fewest points allowed per game in college basketball at 60.3. Less enviably, the Terriers have allowed their opponents to shoot 46.50% from the floor on average, which is the 14th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against St. Francis (N.Y.).
