USA TODAY Sports

East Tennessee State had several options at the offensive end but Tookie Brown was Georgia Southern’s lone double digit scorer with a contest high 24 points and five pulls on 9-16 from the floor. Mike Hughes and Shawn O’Connell gave the Eagles nine points apiece with a combined 14 rebounds while BJ Gladden chipped in with seven points.              

The Troy Trojans finished their non-conference schedule at 6-7 and struggled over the last few weeks with four straight losses before getting back in the win column with an 80-67 victory over the subdivision Milligan Buffaloes. Both teams sank shots at around 41% but Troy owned a 24-3 advantage at the foul line.

Wesley Person Jr. was the top scorer for the Trojans with 23 points on 5-16 from the floor including 10-10 at the stripe. BJ Miller and Juan Davis Jr. gave Troy 13 points apiece with Davis totaling ten boards on 10-15 shooting followed by Javan Johnson and Alex Hicks with a combined 20 points with Hicks hauling in 12 rebounds. 

Georgia Southern are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and Georgia Southern are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600 and Georgia Southern are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. Over is 15-3 in Troy last 18 Friday games and Troy are 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 Friday Games and over is 10-4 in Troy last 14 home games.

Georgia Southern would seem to be the obvious choice with Troy missing Justin Varnado but I’m sitting this out…
