The Southern Indiana Screaming Eagles and the Chicago State Cougars meet in college basketball action from the Jones Convocation Center on Sunday.

The Southern Indiana Screaming Eagles will try to rebound from an 86-78 loss to Western Illinois in their last game. Jelani Simmons leads Southern Indiana in scoring with 14.9 PPG along with 3.4 RPG while Jacob Polakovich has 12.2 PPG and 9.2 RPG this season. Trevor Lakes has 11.1 PPG with 5.7 RPG while Tyler Henry and Gary Solomon each have 10+ PPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Southern Indiana up to this point in the season. Isaiah Swope has 9.6 PPG and a team-high 3.6 APG to lead the Screaming Eagels in assists up to this point in the year. As a team, Southern Indiana is averaging 76 PPG on 46.7% shooting from the field, 39.9% from three and 67.6% from the foul line this season.

The Chicago State Cougars will hope to snap a five-game losing skid after an 86-73 loss to Bethune-Cookman last time out. Wesley Cardet Jr. leads the Cougars in scoring and assists with 16.7 PPG and 3.1 APG while Jahsean Crockett has 12.1 PPG with a team-high 9.2 RPG to lead the Cougars on the class and Elijah Weaver has 12.9 PPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Chicago State up to this point in the season. As a team, Chicago State is averaging 66.5 PPG on 40.3% shooting from the field, 32.5% from three and 75.9% from the foul line this season.

The over is 4-1 in Southern Indiana’s last 5 road games. Chicago State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games overall.

I’m not sure what to make of their one of these teams as Southern Indiana continues to alternate wins and losses while Chicago State’s back to old habits, losing games left and right and doing nothing to fix it. That’s why I like the over here. Chicago State keeps playing in high-scoring games, albeit one-sided ones for the most part as the defense can’t get the stops they need to compete. All in all I think this one’s a high-scoring game so give me the over here.
