What to Know

The Presbyterian Blue Hose will take on the VMI Keydets at 4 p.m. ET Wednesday at Lakefront Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

The Blue Hose were pulverized by the Cincinnati Bearcats 79-45 last week. Guard Rayshon Harrison (16 points) was the top scorer for Presbyterian.

VMI lost a heartbreaker to the Marist Red Foxes when they met in November of 2019, and they left with a heavy heart again this past Saturday. VMI fell just short of Marist by a score of 78-74.

Presbyterian is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. Those burned by picking them against the spread last Thursday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

The Blue Hose are now 2-3 while the Keydets sit at 2-2. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Presbyterian has only been able to knock down 34.40% percent of their shots, which is the 355th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. VMI's defense has more to brag about, as they they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 34%, which places them 11th in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
