What to Know

The #22 Xavier Musketeers will play host again and welcome the Morehead State Eagles to Cintas Center, where tip-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday. The Musketeers will be strutting in after a victory while Morehead State will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Xavier took their contest against the Cincinnati Bearcats on Saturday by a conclusive 83-63 score. Xavier's forward Jack Nunge was one of the most active players for the team, dropping a double-double on 31 points and 15 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Morehead State came up short against the E. Tennessee State Buccaneers on Saturday, falling 82-75.

Xavier is the favorite in this one, with an expected 15.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a five-game streak of ATS wins.

Xavier is now 9-1 while the Eagles sit at 6-4. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The Musketeers come into the matchup boasting the 31st most blocked shots per game in college basketball at 5.3. But Morehead State is even better: they enter the game with 6.3 blocked shots per game on average, good for 11th best in college basketball. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
