They should still be feeling good after a victory, while Little Rock will be looking to get back in the win column.

The Chanticleers' win brought them up to 16-12 while Little Rock's defeat pulled them down to 8-18. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Coastal Carolina have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 38.40%, which places them 10th in college basketball.
