Indiana State started the year at 12-4 with losses to UMKC, Duquesne, Southern Indiana and Northern Illinois. The Sycamores are just 2-5 since then with losses to Southern IL, Missouri State, Bradley, Murray State and Drake. 

Indiana State got back into the win column on Saturday versus Northern Iowa, taking a 39-39 tie into the second half. The Sycamores posted 40 more points from there and won 79-71. Xavier Bledson led the team on 20 points and four assists. 

Evansville Aces

Over on the Evansville side, they’ve managed wins only four times this year, beating Miami-OH, Robert Morris, Campbell and Bellarmine. The Aces are riding a 10-game losing streak right now, falling most recently to Valparaiso. 

On Saturday versus Valparaiso, the Aces were outscored 43-28 in the first half. Evansville hit a 41-38 run in the second but still lost 81-69. Leading scorer Gage Bobe posted 22 points and Yacine Toumi added 12 points with six rebounds. 


I’m staying with Indiana State in this one. The Sycamores are just 1-5 in their last six outings, but this is certainly a winnable game. The last time these teams met up back on December 29 at Hulman Center. Indiana State cruised to a 91-63 blowout win thanks to 52 second-half points. The Sycamores have been scoring pretty well lately (67 or more in four straight games) and should notch a decent total here as well.
