UNC-Ash. is the slight favorite, but fans should be in for an exciting game likely to go down to the wire.

UNC-Ash. only won by two when they last took the court, which might have inspired the 31-point they dealt the Buccaneers on Saturday. The Bulldogs steamrolled past the Buccaneers 86-55 at home. With UNC-Ash. ahead 47-23 at the half, the matchup was all but over already.

Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as UNC-Ash. and the Lancers are some of the highest scoring teams in the league. UNC-Ash. hasn't had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 80.6 points per game. However, it's not like Longwood struggles in that department as they've been averaging 75.2 points per game.
