What to Know
The Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks will look to defend their home court Wednesday against the Lehigh Mountain Hawks at 7 p.m. ET. Maryland-Eastern Shore will be hoping to build upon the 81-75 win they picked up against Lehigh when they previously played in December of last year.
A win for Maryland-Eastern Shore just wasn't in the stars last Friday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 72-45 punch to the gut against the Virginia Cavaliers. Maryland-Eastern Shore was surely aware of their 29.5-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result.
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but on Sunday the Mountain Hawks sidestepped the Monmouth Hawks for an 80-76 victory.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Maryland-Eastern Shore is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
Lehigh's victory lifted them to 4-2 while Maryland-Eastern Shore's defeat dropped them down to 2-4. We'll see if Lehigh can repeat their recent success or if Maryland-Eastern Shore bounces back and reverse their fortune.
