What to Know

Get ready for a WAC battle as the Lamar Cardinals and the Tarleton State Texans will face off at 8 p.m. ET this past Saturday at Wisdom Gymnasium. Tarleton State will be strutting in after a victory while Lamar will be stumbling in from a loss.

It's never fun to lose, and it's even less fun to lose 77-42, which was the final score in Lamar's tilt against the Abilene Christian Wildcats this past Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Texans had enough points to win and then some against the UTRGV Vaqueros this past Thursday, taking their matchup 75-62.

The Cardinals have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 13.50 point spread they are up against. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the squad is 7-14-1 ATS when expected to lose.

Lamar is now 2-24 while Tarleton State sits at 13-15. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Lamar is stumbling into the game with the 348th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 61.5 on average. The Texans have had an even harder time: they are 45th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 65.7 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
