What to Know

The Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the St. Peter's Peacocks at 5 p.m. ET Jan. 28 at Knott Arena. These two teams are out to turn their luck around after having lost tight contests in their previous games.

Speaking of close games: it was close but no cigar for St. Peter's as they fell 59-57 to the Niagara Purple Eagles on Sunday.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Mountaineers are expected to win a tight contest Saturday. But bettors beware: they are only 2-5 against the spread when favored.

The losses put Mount St. Mary's at 7-14 and St. Peter's at 8-12. A couple offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Mount St. Mary's is 351st worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 62 on average. The Peacocks have experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 38.30% percent of their shots, which is the 360th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
