What to Know

The LIU Sharks and the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights are set to square off in a Northeast matchup at 2 p.m. ET Feb. 26 at Steinberg Wellness Center. The Sharks are out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.

While not quite a landslide, the matchup between LIU and the Merrimack Warriors on Thursday was still a pretty decisive one as LIU wrapped it up with an 85-74 win at home. LIU got double-digit scores from four players: forward Ty Flowers (24), forward Eral Penn (24), forward Isaac Kante (20), and guard Alex Rivera (12).

Meanwhile, Fairleigh Dickinson narrowly escaped with a victory as the squad sidled past the Wagner Seahawks 88-86. Guard Brandon Rush took over for Fairleigh Dickinson, finishing with 36 points (a whopping 41% of their total).

The Sharks are the favorite in this one, with an expected 13.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

Their wins bumped LIU to 14-13 and the Knights to 4-20. Eral Penn will be someone to keep an eye on after he posted a double-double on 24 points and 11 boards on Thursday. Let's see if he can build on that strong performance or if Fairleigh Dickinson's defense can bottle him up.
