The Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers and the Marist Red Foxes meet in college basketball action from the McCann Arena on Sunday afternoon.

The Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers will look to build on a 64-60 win over Canisius last time out. Jalen Benjamin leads the Mountaineers in scoring and assists with 15 PPG and 4.4 APG while Dakota Leffew has 13.2 PPG to finish off the pair of double-digit scorers for Mount St. Mary’s this season. Malik Jefferson has 9.7 PPG and a team-high 6.9 RPG to lead the Mountaineers in rebounding while George Tinsley also has 5.9 RPG as well for the Mountaineers this season. As a team, Mount St. Mary’s is averaging 64.1 PPG on 41.7% shooting from the field, 35.1% from behind the arc and 72.4% from the foul line this season.

The Marist Red Foxes will try to snap a five-game losing skid after an 84-57 loss to Iona last time out. Patrick Gardner leads Marist in scoring and rebounding with 16.9 PPG and 7.1 RPG as the lone double-digit scorer for Marist so far this season while Isaiah Brickner has a team-high 2.5 APG to lead the Red Foxes in the assist department and Noah Harris has 9.3 PPG as well this season. As a team, Marist is averaging 62.4 PPG on 39.1% shooting from the field, 31.8% from three and 66ou% from the foul line this season.

Mount St. Mary’s is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games against a team with a losing home record and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Marist is 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.

I get that this is a bit of a low total, but you have two of the least productive offenses in college basketball going at it in this one and I expect there to be a ton of bricks thrown up in this game. This just feels like the first to 60 wins if we even get there. Give me the under.
