What to Know
The Florida A&M Rattlers have quite the challenge ahead of them as they're expected to be blown off the court 1. Their road trip will continue as they head to Watsco Center at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday to face off against the Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes. They will be strutting in after a victory while Florida A&M will be stumbling in from a loss.
The Rattlers received a tough blow this past Friday as they fell 60-43 to the Oregon State Beavers. Guard Jordan Tillmon had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 12 points on 5-for-15 shooting and turning the ball over six times in his 37 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the matchup between the Hurricanes and the UNCG Spartans this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as Miami (Fla.) wrapped it up with a 79-65 win at home. Among those leading the charge for Miami (Fla.) was guard Jordan Miller, who had 19 points along with seven boards.
Florida A&M found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 86-59 punch to the gut against Miami (Fla.) when the two teams previously met in November of last year. Can the Rattlers avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
