Grambling State went 5-3 over their first eight games this year, losing to Grand Canyon, Arizona State and Incarnate Word. Since then it’s been a 2-2 run for the Tigers with wins over Vanderbilt and North American. 

In the North American game, the Tigers didn’t have too much trouble. Grambling State put up 47 points in the first half and 54 more from there in a 101-42 blowout win. Shawndarius Cowart led the team on 19 points with five assists. 

Over on the Prairie View A&M side, they hit a 4-2 run out of the gate with losses to TN-Martin and UTSA. The Panthers have since lost to Oklahoma State, Rice, Northwestern, UIC, Montana, New Mexico and Texas A&M in succession. 

In the Texas A&M game, the Panthers were drilled 53-32 in the first half. Prairie View kept the pace from there but still lost 86-66. William Douglas was the top team scorer on 15 points, and both Yahuza Rasas and Jeremiah Gambrell each put up 12 points. 

PICK: I’ll probably stick with Grambling State. Probably also staying away. The Tigers haven’t been scoring all that well during this current 2-2 stretch. They’ve been at 64 points or below in three of those games and given up 74 or more in two of the last three. The good news for Grambling State is that Prairie View is struggling during this seven-game losing streak with 66 or fewer points in six of those outings. The Tigers should be in line for a cover/win here if they play well, but there’s not a ton of intrigue involved.
