The Southern Jaguars take the floor with the Texas Southern Tigers in a SWAC college basketball bout.

The Southern Jaguars come in to their  SWAC opener with a 4-9 record following an easy 98-57 rout of the subdivision Ecclesia College Royals on Friday. This was never in doubt with Southern taking a 47-24 lead in to the break with a 44.3%-27.4% shooting edge and 26 more looks at the basket equaling an easy win.

Sidney Umude led the Jaguars scoring parade with 14 points and six pulls on 6-12 from the floor with Richard Lee and Jamar Sandfer tossing in 13 points apiece with Sandfer grabbing nine boards. Aaron Ray gave Southern 12 points on 5-10 shooting while Chris Thomas and Mubasher Ali netted ten points each with Ali hauling in eleven rebounds. 

The Texas Southern Tigers bring a 0-13 record in to the conference opener after suffering a 73-52 defeat at the Brigham Young Cougars that was just a three point game heading to the locker room. Cougars pulled away in the final 20 minutes behind a 42.9%-36% edge in marksmanship with 13 more shots. 

Texas Southern received 16 points and eight rebounds from Lamont Walker on 5-10 from the floor including a 3-6 effort on long balls. Donte Clark gave the Tigers 15 points and four yanks along with six turnovers on 5-17 shooting while Marquis Salmon added ten points and seven rebounds on 4-6 from the field.

Southern are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Southwestern Athletic and Southern are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and Southern are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. Texas Southern are 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and Texas Southern are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall and Texas Southern are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 Monday games.

Texas Southern has played a brutal schedule and have yet to play at home. The Tigers could explode here but I’m thinking the points are a solid bet…
