Samford @ DePaul
Current Records: Samford 6-2; DePaul 3-3
What to Know
After a four-game homestand, the Samford Bulldogs will be on the road. They will square off against the DePaul Blue Demons at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday at Wintrust Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
It was close but no cigar for the Bulldogs as they fell 84-82 to the UT Southern FireHawks on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the contest between DePaul and the Texas A&M Aggies last week was not particularly close, with the Blue Demons falling 82-66. DePaul's defeat shouldn't obscure the performances of forward Eral Penn, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and ten rebounds, and guard Umoja Gibson, who posted a double-double on 13 points and ten assists along with six steals. That makes it four consecutive games in which Penn has had at least ten rebounds.
Samford is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. Those brave souls putting their money on DePaul against the spread have faith in an upset since their team's 2-4 record ATS can't hold a candle to Samford's 3-1.
Samford is now 6-2 while the Blue Demons sit at 3-3. The Bulldogs are 0-1 after losses this year, DePaul 0-2.
