The South Alabama Jaguars and the Evansville Aces meet in college basketball action from the Enmarket Arena on Friday evening.

The South Alabama Jaguars will look to rebound from a 64-60 loss to Oklahoma last time out, their 3rd straight defeat. Isaiah Moore leads the Jaguars in scoring and assists with 19.5 PPG and 5.2 APG while Kevin Samuel ha 11.5 PPG with a team-high 9.3 RPG to lead the Jaguars in rebounding. Greg Parham II has 10.3 PPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for South Alabama so far this season. As a team, South Alabama is averaging 71.5 PPG on 45.2% shooting from the field, 26.7% from three and 71.4% from the foul line this season.

The Evansville Aces will try to snap their four-game losing skid after a 76-56 loss to UCF last time out. Kenny Strawbridge leads the Aces in scoring with 15.3 PPG along with 3.8 RPG while Yacine Toumi has 13.3 PPG and a team-high 7.5 RPG to lead Evansville in rebounding as the only other double-digit scorer for the Aces up to this point in the year. Marvin Coleman II also has a team-high 2.3 APG this season. As a team, Evansville is averaging 61.4 PPG on 34.9% shooting from the field, 23.9% from three and 67.4% from the foul line this season.

South Alabama is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 11-4 in their last 15 games overall. Evansville is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall.

I really want no part of either of these teams because the bulk of their games if not all of their games have been in the underdog role. That being said, the Aces are the underdog here and are at home, and their losses have at least come to top-tier opposition. South Alabama’s played some tough ones too, but I don’t want to be laying nearly double-digits with them.

Chris Ruffolo's Free Pick:
Evansville +8.5
