The Fairfield Stags collide with the Houston Cougars in Wednesday afternoon college basketball.
The Fairfield Stags need consistency at both ends of the floor to bounce back from losses in four of five. Fairfield comes off of a 78-76 defeat to the Wagner Seahawks that wasn’t decided until the final horn with both teams connecting at around 40% with the Seahawks hitting a few more three pointers being the biggest difference.

The Stags received a game high 22 points, eight rebounds and four assists from Tyler Nelson who made just 7-23 from the floor. Kevin Senghore-Peterson netted 17 points and posted four yanks on 6-10 shooting with Ferron Flavors Jr. tossed in 14 points on 4-8 from distance followed by an eleven point, nine rebound effort from Omar El-Sheikh.
The Houston Cougars look solid on paper with a 6-1 record but we’ll know more about this team once the schedule toughens. Houston has won five straight capped off by a 91-65 pasting of the Arkansas Razorbacks as a 4.5 point underdog. The Cougars raced out to a 15 point advantage heading to the locker room and kept their foot on the gas to the end with 51.8% shooting including a 10-21 mark on threes easily outdistancing the Razorbacks 34.5%.
Devin Davis pumped in a game best 28 points and hauled in a game ten rebounds on 10-14 from the field. Corey Davis Jr. gave the Cougars 17 points on the strength of five bombs while Armoni Brooks and Rob Gray Jr. netted eleven points apiece with Gray posting four yanks.
Fairfield are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games and under is 15-6-2 in Fairfield last 23 overall and over is 11-5 in Fairfield last 16 non-conference games. Over is 6-2 in Houston last 8 home games and Houston are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall and Houston are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games.
When comparing to numbers it’s easy to back Houston and forget about it but this team lost to a struggling Drexel and I’m uncertain of their focus…
