College Basketball: Tuesday, March 3, 2020 at 7:00 pm (Buccaneer Fieldhouse)

The Line: Charleston Southern Buccaneers -4.5 -- Over/Under: 139


The Presbyterian Blue Hose and the Charleston Southern Buccaneers meet in college basketball action from CSU Field House on Tuesday. 

Presbyterian enters this Big South Tournament at 10-21 on the year. Following a recent six-game losing streak, Presbyterian played Charleston Southern on Saturday in their last game and managed an 11-point victory. 

In the Saturday win over Charleston Southern, Presbyterian’s Ben Drake led the team on 21 points, 11 rebounds and one assist for a double-double. Cory Hightower added 15 points and eight rebounds there and JC Younger put up 13 points and two rebounds. 

Over on the Charleston Southern side, they’re 13-17 on the year. Charleston Southern has lost their last four straight games to UNC Asheville, Campbell, Gardner-Webb and Presbyterian. 

In the loss to Presbyterian on Saturday, Charleston Southern’s leading scorers were Ty Jones and Deontaye Buskey, each with 19 points and three assists, along with a combined 11 rebounds. Phlandrous Fleming was also in double-digits there with 11 points, four rebounds and three assists. 

Charleston Southern is 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 0-6 ATS in their last six overall. Charleston Southern is 0-5 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss and the under is 5-0 in the last five Tuesday games.
Meanwhile, Presbyterian is 0-4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 1-4 ATS in the last five versus a team with a losing straight-up record. Presbyterian is 0-5 ATS in their last five after an ATS win and the over is 12-4 in their last 16 overall. 

This matchup is pretty interesting, in that these teams just played each other on Saturday. Presbyterian won that one at home 76-65, but it’s worth noting Charleston Southern won their home game versus Presbyterian 74-66 back on January 23. 

Charleston Southern’s scoring has been pretty spotty as of late, and they’re going to have a good opportunity here to pour in some points. This one should be a pretty high-scoring affair and a tight game, but I’m leaning toward Charleston Southern ultimately covering. Beyond that there's really not much to get excited about here.
