Jackson State @ Little Rock
Current Records: Jackson State 0-2; Little Rock 1-3
What to Know
The Little Rock Trojans will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will square off against the Jackson State Tigers at 7:30 p.m. ET Sunday at Jack Stephens Center. Little Rock is expected to win -- but not by much -- so they will need to come into the game prepared for a fight.
The Trojans came up short against the E. Tennessee State Buccaneers this past Thursday, falling 84-76.
Meanwhile, Jackson State was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap last week as they fell 85-79 to the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Gabe Watson had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 12 points on 4-for-17 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.
Little Rock is now 1-3 while Jackson State sits at 0-2. A pair of last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Little Rock has allowed their opponents to shoot 47.10% from the floor on average, which is the 31st highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Tigers experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 40.20% percent of their shots, which is the 32nd lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
