The Howard Bison and the Delaware State Hornets meet in college basketball action from Memorial Hall on Monday night.

The Howard Bison will look to find some consistency after alternating wins and losses in each of their last six games after a 72-64 win over Maryland-Eastern Shore last time out. Kyle Foster leads the Bison in scoring with 15.4 PPG with 3.9 RPG while Steve Settle III has 14.3 PPG with 4.7 RPG. Elijah Hawkins has 12.7 PPG with 3.5 RPG with a team-high 6 APG to lead the Bison in the assist department and to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Howard this season. Tai Bibbs has 9.4 PPG and Randall Brumant has 8.9 PPG with a team-high 5.7 RPG to lead the Bison on the glass. As a team, Howard is averaging 77.4 PPG on 46% shooting from the field, 38.1% from three and 74.1% from the foul line while allowing 71.1 PPG on 42.8% shooting from the field and 33.2% from three this season.

The Delaware State Hornets will try to bounce back after a 59-57 loss to Coppin State last time out. Myles Carter has 14.2 PPG with 5.7 RPG to lead the Hornets in scoring while Dominik Fragala has 13.3 PPG with 3 RPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Delaware State so far this season. Chris Sodom also has a team-high 6.2 RPG to lead Delaware State on the glass so far this year. As a team, Delaware State is averaging 60.6 PPG on 38.8% shooting from the field, 29.8% from three and 66.2% from the foul line while allowing 73.4 PPG on 41.4% shooting from the field and 36.1% from three this season.

Howard is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a win while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 road games against a team with a losing home record.

I get the allure of points with Delaware State after a pair of back-to-back losses against two teams in the top half of the MEAC. However, Howard’s played some tough competition and they’ve been a lot more consistent in terms of picking up wins. A couple of decent performances for Delaware State doesn’t change the fact that this team only has two wins this season and while it’s a boatload to give up, I have to side with Howard in a 20+ point win.
