The East Tennessee State Buccaneers host the unbeaten UNC Wilmington Seahawks.
The UNC Wilmington Seahawks are not expected to be a factor on the Colonial due to graduation but they have done well in the early going with three wins in a row after an 80-75 victory versus Western Michigan in which they rallied from a seven deficit at the break. WMU hit shots at 51% but 18 turnovers helped the Seahawks to 14 more shots to make their 14 more looks and ten bombs a winning combo despite 39% accuracy. Chris Flemmings was the Seahawks star with 19 points and five yanks with Jordan Tally and Denzel Ingram combining for 22 points. Overall eleven players saw the floor and each scored.

The East Tennessee State Buccaneers have a slew of new faces yet are expected to crack the top four in the SoCon. The Buccaneers missed out on consecutive victories following a 77-76 loss at the hands of Charleston Southern on Tuesday as a comeback fro a 13 point hole fell just short. CSU held a 52.7%-47% shooting advantage with four more free throws being just enough. Ge’Lawn Guyn tossing in a game high 23 points with AJ Merriweather adding 17 points and ten rebounds. Deuce Belio and TJ Cromer tossed in 13 points apiece but the rest of the team combined for just ten points.
UNC-Wilmington are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Southern and the over is 7-3 in their last 10 road games. East Tennessee State are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games and are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games while going 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games overall. This looks like a coin flip but I think the ETSU minus points are the choice…
