The Green Bay Phoenix improved to 2-1 with a victory Monday over East Carolina. On the season, Green Bay is averaging 63 points on 43.8 percent shooting and is allowing 66.5 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Keifer Sykes is 14-27 from the field with six assists in his last two games and Greg Mays is 9-16 from the field in his last two contests. Jordan Fouse has 19 rebounds in his last two games and Alfonzo McKinnie has 22 points on the season. The Green Bay Phoenix are by far the favorites to win the Horizon League led by one of the better players in the conference in Sykes. And while Green Bay’s offense can certainly handle it’s own, its the defense that’s been impressive, producing more than seven blocks per game.
The Purple Aces are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Phoenix are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.
In a toss-up game between two squads eager to prove themselves, give me the points.
