What to Know
Get ready for a Patriot battle as the Loyola-Maryland Greyhounds and the American Eagles will face off at 2 p.m. ET Saturday at Bender Arena. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
Loyola-Maryland lost a heartbreaker to the Navy Midshipmen when they met earlier this month, and they left with a heavy heart again on Wednesday. It was close but no cigar for the Greyhounds as they fell 52-50 to Navy.
Meanwhile, American lost to the Lehigh Mountain Hawks on the road by a decisive 78-61 margin.
Loyola-Maryland is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 5-10-1 against the spread when favored.
Loyola-Maryland didn't have too much breathing room in their game with the Eagles in the teams' previous meeting last month, but they still walked away with a 78-73 win. The rematch might be a little tougher for the Greyhounds since the team won't have home-court advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
