The UT San Antonio Roadrunners look for a win after losing five of their last six. On the season, UTSA is averaging 71.2 points on 42.4 percent shooting and is allowing 70.8 points on 45 percent shooting. Jeromie Hill is averaging 16.3 points and eight rebounds while Keon Lewis is averaging 15.4 points and 3.1 assists. Ryan Bowie is grabbing 5.8 rebounds and Kaj-Björn Sherman is shooting 58.5 percent. The UT San Antonio Roadrunners have four double-digit scorers, and they’re shooting 70.2 percent from the line and 32.4 percent from deep. Defensively, UTSA is allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and has given up 69 or more points in five of its last six games.
UTSA beat FIU rather easily in the previous meeting this season and is far the deeper team offensively. I look for the Roadrunners to get the job done here and cover the rather reasonale spread.
