The UNC-Wilmington Seahawks and the Towson Tigers meet in college basketball action from the SECU Arena on Saturday afternoon.

The UNC-Wilmington Seahawks will try to build on a 71-70 win over James Madison in their last game. Jaylen Sims leads the Seahawks in scoring and rebounding with 13.6 PPG and 5.9 RPG while Mike Okauru has 11.5 PPG and a team-high 3 APG and Shykeim Phillips also has 10.7 PPG and 3.6 RPG as well to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for UNC-Wilmington this season. As a team, UNC Wilmington is averaging 68.5 PPG on 40.3% shooting from the field, 32% from three and 68.6% from the foul line while allowing 67.1 PPG on 44.1% shooting from the field and 36.2% from three this season.

The Towson Tigers will look to build on their 74-67 win over Charleston last time out. Cameron Holden leads the Tigers in scoring and rebounding with 14.2 PPG and 8.8 RPG in addition to 2.8 APG while Nicolas Timberlake has 13.6 PPG with 4.6 RPG and Terry Nolan Jr. has 11.2 PPG with a team-high 4.4 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 72.6 PPG on 44.3% shooting from the field, 36.8% from three and 71.3% from the foul line while allowing 64.6 PPG on 40.4% shooting from the field and 32.1% from three this season.

UNC-Wilmington is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 road games. Towson is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall and 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 8-3 in their last 11 Saturday games.

I get the case that could be made both ways here, but as good as Towson has been ATS this season, they kinda blew it for me in their last game and while I’m not fading them after that, I’m simply looking the other way here. UNCW has been solid as an underdog lately and the underdog’s covered in 20 of the last 26 meetings between these two teams. Just a sample size too big to ignore. Give me the Seahawks and the points here.
