The Charleston Cougars and the Towson Tigers meet in college basketball action from the SECU Arena on Thursday night.

The Charleston Cougars come into this one looking to rebound from an 86-78 loss to UNC-Wilmington last time out. John Meeks leads the Cougars in scoring with 15.8 PPG along with 5 RPG while Reyne Smith has 12.5 PPG and Brenden Tucker has 11.3 PPG this season. Dimitrius Underwood has 10.3 PPG with a team-high 6.7 RPG and 3.1 APG to lead the Cougars in rebounding as well as capping off the group of double-digit scorers for Charleston so far this season. Fah’Mir Ali also has a team-high 3.4 APG as well for the Cougars this season. As a team, Charleston is averaging 78.1 PPG on 42.1% shooting from the field, 33.5% from three and 71.9% from the foul line while allowing 77.1 PPG on 45.2% shooting from the field and 33.8% from three this season.

The Towson Tigers will try to add to a 91-69 win over William & Mary last time out. Cameron Holden leads the Tigers in scoring and rebounding with 14.5 PPG and 9.1 RPG in addition to 2.7 APG while Nicolas Timberlake has 13.4 PPG with 4.6 RPG and Terry Nolan Jr. has 11.3 PPG with a team-high 4.6 APG this season. Jason Gibson also has 11.9 PPG to make up the group of Tigers averaging double figures in scoring for Towson so far this season. As a team, Towson is averaging 72.5 PPG on 44.6% shooting from the field, 36.8% from three and 71.2% from the foul line while allowing 64.4 PPG on 40.9% shooting from the field and 32.4% from three this season.

Charleston is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Towson is 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games overall and 9-0 ATS in their last 9 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win.

I think one has to really wonder if this run with Towson ATS can continue, but until it cools off, I think you have to keep on it as the Tigers have just been a money printing machine. The Tigers are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 and 9-0 ATS in their last 9 games against teams with winning records, so they’re not just covering against slouches. I respect Charleston, but I like Towson here.
