The UNC-Asheville Bulldogs and the Hampton Pirates meet in college basketball action from the Hampton Convocation Center on Sunday afternoon.

The UNC-Asheville Bulldogs will look to bounce back after falling to 4-6 on the year thanks to a narrow 73-71 loss to Hampton last time out. Tajion Jones leads the Bulldogs in scoring with 18.4 PPG while I.J. Thorpe is 2nd in scoring with 11.6 PPG while sharing the team-high with 3.7 APG this season, making up the pair of double-digit scorers for the Bulldogs heading into Sunday’s rematch with the Pirates. Evan Clayborne has 9.3 PPG with a team-high 6.1 RPG while Trent Stephney has 8.6 PPG with 3.7 APG of his own and Lavar Batts Jr. has 3.6 APG this season. As a team, UNC-Asheville is averaging 73.5 PPG on 46.1% shooting from the field, 32.3% from 3-point range and 56.5% from the foul line while allowing opposing teams to average 73.4 PPG on 45.3% shooting from the field and 29.6% from 3-point range this season.

The Hampton Pirates will look to build on their 5-7 mark after picking up the win over the Bulldogs in Saturday’s first half of the back-to-back. Davion Warren leads Hampton in scoring with 20.3 PPG while logging 6.7 RPG and 3 APG while Russell Dean and Chris Shelton each have 11 PPG with Dean logging a team-high 6.8 APG with 4 RPG and Shelton shooting 50% from the field with a 48% mark from 3-point land. Edward Oliver-Hampton has 10 PPG with a team-high 7.7 RPG to make up the group of double-digit scorers for Hampton heading into Sunday’s matchup for the Pirates. Marquis Godwin is just shy of making it five double-digit scorers for the Pirates with 9.8 PPG and 3.8 RPG for Hampton. As a team, Hampton is averaging 69.5 PPG on 41.6% shooting from the field, 31.2% from 3-point range and 68.1% from the foul line while allowing opposing teams to average 73.9 PPG on 43.8% shooting from the field and 33.2% from 3-point range this season.

UNC-Asheville is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 road games against a team with a losing home record. Hampton is 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a win while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.

Asheville laying the bucket sort of makes sense as the team that lost the first game usually bounces back pretty well in the second half of these back-to-back spots if they lost the first game or if they didn’t cover the number. However, I just think Hampton has more scoring depth with four double-digit scorers and I think the combination will just be too much for Asheville to handle, so I’ll take the points with Hampton in this spot.
