The Coppin State Eagles and the George Washington Colonials meet in college basketball action from the Charles Smith Center on Tuesday night.

The Coppin State Eagles will look to rebound from an 84-75 loss to East Carolina last time out. Sam Sessoms leads the Eagles in scoring and assists with 23.8 PPG and 5.9 APG in addition to 3.9 RPG while Nendah Tarke has 12.7 PPG with a team-high 5.8 RPG to lead Coppin State on the glass as the only other double-digit scorer for Coppin State up to this point in the year. Justin Winston has 9.4 PPG while Justin Steers also has 8.6 PPG and 5.1 RPG. As a team, Coppin State is averaging 76 PPG on 45% shooting from the field, 34.6% from three and 72.6% from the foul line this season.

The George Washington Colonials will try to bounce back from a 69-64 loss to American last time out. James Bishop leads the Colonials in scoring and assists with 21.3 PPG and 5.6 APG while Brendan Adams has 16.8 PPG with 4.8 RPG and 2.8 APG this season. Ricky Lindo Jr. has 10.4 PPG and a team-high 7.8 RPG to lead the Colonials on the glass and to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for GW this season. As a team, George Washington is averaging 75.9 PPG on 48.4% shooting from the field, 33.8% from three and 72.3% from the foul line up to this point in the season.

Coppin State is 19-9-2 ATS in their last 30 road games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. George Washington is 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 home games.

I get the case to be made for either side in this game, but I’m leaning towards George Washington here. The Colonials have a decisive edge in the defensive side of the floor and while Coppin State has a decent offense, GW is more consistent with hitting their shots and I just don’t know where the stops for Coppin State come if they do. Give me the Colonials laying the points.
