Will update with trends once they're released.  

The St. Francis (PA) Red Flash have been awful during this five-game losing streak, mainly on the offensive side of the floor where they don't shoot a decent percentage from anywhere. The Long Island University Sharks only have three games under their belt, but they've been solid defensively and have a good player in Flowers leading the way. The Long Island University Sharks also just beat the St. Francis (PA) Red Flash yesterday, in control from start to finish and forcing 27 turnovers. St. Francis (PA) win that game if it took better care of the ball, but the sloppiness is hard to ignore. 

I'll lay the bucket with the Long Island University Sharks.
