What to Know

The Georgia Southern Eagles are 9-3 against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks since January of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Friday. The Eagles' homestand continues as they prepare to take on Louisiana-Monroe at 7 p.m. ET Feb. 25 at W.S. Hanner Fieldhouse. Both teams looked pretty sloppy on the offensive side of the ball the last time they faced off, scoring just 95 points combined.

Georgia Southern ended up a good deal behind the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns when they played on Wednesday, losing 82-69.

Meanwhile, Louisiana-Monroe received a tough blow on Wednesday as they fell 82-70 to the Georgia State Panthers.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Georgia Southern is expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past four games, so buyers beware.

The losses put Georgia Southern at 11-16 and the Warhawks at 13-17. A couple stats to keep an eye on: The Eagles are stumbling into the matchup with the 46th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 66 on average. Louisiana-Monroe has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 51st worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 73.9 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
