Cade Tyson has 16.7 PPG with 6 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Belmont so far this season as the Bruins’ top rebounder.

Evansville vs. Belmont Prediction

I’m on Belmont here. The Bruins are the better team in this matchup and have something to play for as they’re still hunting a first round bye in the MVC tournament. Evansville is regressing to look like the Aces we’ve become used to seeing when Evansville’s taken the floor the last few years and that’s not where the Aces want to be believe me. I think Belmont wins this one comfortably so give me the Bruins laying the points.
