We have some non-conference action on the hardwood as the Austin Peay Governors take on the Virginia Cavaliers in a college basketball matchup.

The Austin Peay Governors will try to pull off the upset and in turn get their first win of the season after falling in their opener by a final score of 73-54 to Vanderbilt. Terry Taylor was the lone Governor to reach double figures in scoring, hitting 5 of his 10 field goal attempts including a pair of threes for 15 points. After Taylor, the next closest Governor was Averyl Ugba who put up 6 points on 3 of 8 shooting. Chris Porter-Bunton led the team with 4 rebounds, while Zach Giotta dished out a team-high 4 assists in the losing effort. As a team, Austin Peay is scoring 54 points per game on 40.7% shooting from the field, including 23.1% from behind the arc and 58.3% from the foul line this season.

The Virginia Cavaliers will look to rack up another win to improve to 2-0 this season after emerging victorious in their season opener, defeating UNC-Greensboro by a final score of 60-48. Kyle Guy led the team by putting up a game-high 16 points on 3 of 8 shooting with a pair of triples and 8 makes in 10 trips to the foul line in addition to a team-high 3 assists and 3 steals. Devon Hall came 2nd with 13 points on 4 of 5 shooting with a three of his own to go along with 6 rebounds, while Isaiah Wilkins added 9 points, 8 rebounds and 3 blocks in the win. As a team, Virginia is scoring 60 points per game on 42.9% shooting from the field, 25% from behind the arc and 83.3% from the foul line this season.

Austin Peay is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 9-5 in their last 14 games overall. Virginia is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall while the under is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall.

I think it’s safe to say that Virginia is the better team here, but my concern is can they score enough to cover a spread of this magnitude. As much as I worry about Austin Peay’s offense after losing so much talent from last season, I think there’s enough talent to at least keep this one within 30 points, so I’ll take Austin Peay and the truckload of points.
