The VMI Keydets have split their last six games and look for their fifth Southern victory. On the season, VMI is averaging 76.9 points on 38.1 percent shooting and is allowing 84 points on 49.3 percent shooting. Tim Marshall is averaging 11.5 points and 2.8 rebounds while Brian Brown is averaging nine points and 1.9 assists. Julian Eleby is dishing 2.4 assists and Phillip Anglade is grabbing 6.4 rebounds. The VMI Keydets have seven players averaging at least six points, and they’re shooting 68.4 percent from the line and 30.4 percent from downtown. Defensively, VMI is allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and has given up 75 or more points in five straight games.
The Spartans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Keydets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games.
The only thing worse than the Spartans overall SU record are their numbers against the spread. I hate laying chalk with teams that play no defense, but VMI should win this game by double digits.
