What to Know

The Alabama State Hornets will square off against the San Jose State Spartans on the road at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday at Provident Credit Union Event Center. SJSU will be strutting in after a victory while the Hornets will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Alabama State has to be hurting after a devastating 91-62 loss at the hands of the Pepperdine Waves on Sunday. Guard Isaiah Range had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 11 points on 4-for-13 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, everything went SJSU's way against the Bethesda Flames this past Saturday as they made off with a 90-68 win.

Alabama State have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 14.5-point spread they are up against. They have failed bettors playing the spread in all their past three games, so buyers beware.

Alabama State is now 0-3 while the Spartans sit at 2-0. A couple last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Hornets are stumbling into the game with the 362nd most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 75.2 on average. SJSU experienced some struggles of their own as they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 30%, which places them 10th in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
