What to Know
The Jackson State Tigers have quite the challenge ahead of them as they're expected to be blown off the court. They will hit the road for the second straight game as they head to Donald Reynolds Center at 3 p.m. ET Saturday. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
Jackson State came up short against the Abilene Christian Wildcats on Monday, falling 65-56.
Meanwhile, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane were close but no cigar on Monday as they fell 73-70 to the Oregon State Beavers.
The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 0-1. A couple last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Tigers are stumbling into the contest with the 11th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 61 on average. The Golden Hurricane have only been able to knock down 36.40% percent of their shots, which is the 17th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
