The Bulldogs needed a few more options at the offensive end with only two double digit scorers to lean on. Drake received 15 points and three yanks from Graham Woodward on 5-10 from the floor with Nick McGlynn tossing in eleven points and posting three assists on 4-9 shooting. De’Antae McMurray gave the Bulldogs eight points on 3-10 while Reed Timmer chipped in with seven points.

The Evansville Purple Aces have been riding their top 25 defense and ‘just’ enough scoring to a 12-6 record. Evansville will be gunning for their third straight Missouri Valley win after upending the Missouri State Bears as a three point home underdog. Evansville limited Missouri State to 36.2% shooting which made their own 45.8% accuracy a winner. 

The balanced Purple Aces offense received 15 points, five pulls and four helpers from Dru Smith on 3-7 from the floor and 8-8 at the stripe followed by Ryan Taylor with 13 points and five pulls. KJ Riley gave Evansville eleven points with Dainius Chatkevius adding ten points and eleven rebounds on 5-9 from the floor.

Evansville are 16-7 ATS in their last 23 Saturday games. Over is 46-21 in Drake last 67 home games. Evansville are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Drake and Evansville are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings.

I think it’s splitting hairs saying one team is better then the other in what should be a close one…
