Delaware State’s only two wins came in their first four games this year. Since then it’s been an ugly 19-game losing streak. The Hornets have lost to MD-Eastern Shore, Howard, Norfolk State and North Carolina Central in their last quartet. 

In the NC Central game, the Hornets had a 31-27 lead by halftime but needed overtime to decide the outcome. Delaware State ended up with an 84-79 loss after the extra period. John Stansbury led the team on 26 points with six boards. 

Over on the South Carolina State side, their year started out on a sketchy 7-10 clip but the Bulldogs have done well since then. It’s been a 7-2 run over the last nine; after a loss to Morgan State, SC State bounced back with a weekend win over MD-Eastern Shore. 

Matched up against MD-Eastern Shore on Saturday, the Bulldogs trailed by five points heading into the second half. South Carolina State scored 36 points from there in a 70-63 victory. TJ Madlock was tops on the team with 18 points and seven assists. 

The Bulldogs are 20-8-2 ATS in their last 30 overall and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 after an ATS win. SC State is 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 at home. 

Meanwhile, the Hornets are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last eight overall. Delaware State is 7-1 ATS in their last eight after a straight-up loss. 

PICK: I’m going to take a stab on Delaware State. Sure, the Hornets’ recent record looks pretty ugly—and it is—but the team has managed a few close calls during this losing streak. Delaware State has been within eight points in five of their last six losses, and generally they’re keeping other teams honest with their defense. The last time these teams met up back on January 24, the Bulldogs pulled off a 64-62 win. This one should be equally competitive and I like the Hornets to power out a cover.
