What to Know
The Charlotte 49ers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the #12 Arkansas Razorbacks at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Bud Walton Arena. These two teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.
Charlotte beat the George Washington Colonials 86-79 this past Saturday. The 49ers' guard Jahmir Young looked sharp as he had 26 points.
Meanwhile, the Razorbacks didn't have too much trouble with the Little Rock Trojans at home this past Saturday as they won 93-78. Arkansas can attribute much of their success to guard Au'Diese Toney, who had 18 points in addition to eight rebounds, and guard Davonte Davis, who had 16 points and seven assists.
Charlotte is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Saturday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
The wins brought Charlotte up to 4-3 and Arkansas to 8-0. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The 49ers are stumbling into the game with the 45th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 75.1 on average. The Razorbacks' offense has more to brag about, as they they rank 21st in college basketball when it comes to points per game, with 83.3 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
