The Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans look for a road win at the South Alabama Jaguars.
The Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans rode a superb defense to a perfect 10-0 start before Texas Tech ruined the party with a 65-53 decision. The Red Raiders defense was dominant by holding the Trojans to less then 40% shooting and 5-23 from distance while TT hit a 43% and sank nine more free throws. The Arkansas-Little Rock offense was a two a two man show with Josh Hagins and Marcus Johnson Jr. netting 14 points apiece with four others adding between 5-6 points so there wasn’t enough offensive options although the defense performed reasonably well.

I don’t know where the South Alabama Jaguars fit in the Sun Belt this season but they might be on their way to building some momentum with consecutive wins after a 74-67 win versus Rice. Even though the Jaguars burned the nets at nearly 54%, they turned the ball over 19 times which led to eleven more Owls looks and the defense saved the day by allowing less then 40% marksmanship. USA was led by Georgi Boyanov with 18 points and 12 rebounds with Nick Davis tossing in 15 points. Nick Stover added 12 points, five pulls and five assists while all ten players that saw the floor managed to score.
The under is 8-0 in UALR last 8 road games and is 8-1 in UALR last 9 overall while the over is 10-4 in their last 14 vs. Sun Belt. South Alabama are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 Wednesday games and are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. Sun Belt while the under is 33-15 in their last 48 home games. It’s tough to see where these teams are until they begin conference play…
