Delaware State @ Columbia

Current Records: Delaware State 1-2; Columbia 0-3

What to Know

The Delaware State Hornets are staying on the road Wednesday to face off against the Columbia Lions at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 16 at Francis S. Levien Gymnasium. Delaware State might not be the betting favorite, but it's doubtful the players in their locker room care too much about that.

The Hornets came up short against the Villanova Wildcats on Monday, falling 60-50.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Columbia as they fell 88-85 to the Sacred Heart Pioneers on Sunday.

The losses put Delaware State at 1-2 and Columbia at 0-3. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Delaware State has allowed their opponents to shoot 47.70% from the floor on average, which is the 31st highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Lions have experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 36% percent of their shots, which is the 352nd lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
