What to Know

The Texas Southern Tigers are 10-3 against the Jackson State Tigers since January of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Wednesday. Texas Southern and Jackson State are set to clash at 3 p.m. ET March 9 at Bartow Arena in the first round of the Southwestern Athletic Conference Tourney.

Texas Southern escaped with a win this past Saturday against the Prairie View A&M Panthers by the margin of a single free throw, 78-77.

Meanwhile, Jackson State bagged a 76-69 win over the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils this past Saturday.

Texas Southern is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

A couple stats to keep an eye on: Texas Southern have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 40.20%, which places them 31st in college basketball. Less enviably, Jackson State has only been able to knock down 40.70% percent of their shots, which is the 20th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against Jackson State.
