What to Know
The Central Connecticut State Blue Devils are home Sunday, but with the point spread against them by 7.5 points, it might not be quite the welcoming they would prefer. They will take on the Quinnipiac Bobcats at 1 p.m. ET at William H. Detrick Gymnasium. Quinnipiac should still be riding high after a win, while the Blue Devils will be looking to right the ship.
The oddsmakers predicted a rough contest for Central Connecticut State last week, and boy were they were right. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 94-67 walloping at the Massachusetts Minutemen's hands.
Meanwhile, Quinnipiac bagged a 102-95 victory over the Stonehill Skyhawks this past Thursday.
Central Connecticut State is now 0-1 while Quinnipiac sits at 2-0. Two last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Blue Devils are stumbling into the matchup with the 355th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 72.1 on average. The Bobcats are 43rd worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 71.5 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
