The Texas A&M-Commerce Lions and the Wyoming Cowboys meet in college basketball action from the Arena-Auditorium on Tuesday night.
The Texas A&M-Commerce Lions will look to rebound from an 84-75 loss to Denver in their last game. Demarcus Demonia leads the Lions in scoring and rebounding with 16 PPG and 5.4 RPG while Kalen Williams also has 10.7 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for the Lions so far this season. CJ Roberts also has 9.4 PPG with a team-high 2.9 APG to lead the Lions in assists so far this season. As a team, Texas A&M Commerce is averaging 70.1 PPG on 42.3% shooting from the field, 27.7% from three and 62.9% from the foul line this season.
The Wyoming Cowboys will try to snap a four-game losing streak after a 66-58 loss to Grand Canyon last time out. Hunter Maldonado leads the Cowboys in scoring with 14.3 PPG along with 4.6 RPG while Noah Reynolds has 10.1 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Wyoming up to this point in the season. Max Agbonkpolo has 9.9 PPG with 4.1 RPG while Ethan Anderson has 8 PPG with 3.9 RPG and a team-high 3.6 APG to lead Wyoming in assists. Hunter Thompson also has a team-high 5.3 RPG as well for the Cowboys on the glass this season. As a team, Wyoming is averaging 72.3 PPG on 44.2% shooting from the field, 34.8% from behind the arc and 68.5% from the foul line this season.
Texas A&M-Commerce is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. Wyoming is 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 home games against a team with a losing road record.
I get the case to be made for either side in this game, but I’m leaning towards Wyoming laying the points here. The Cowboys are just the better team in this one and while I’d like more information from an injury perspective, the key contributors look to still be there for Wyoming and all in all, I think the Cowboys end up with a comfortable win and cover here.
