Thursday college basketball action pits the Navy Midshipmen against the Loyola (MD) Greyhounds.

The Navy Midshipmen look to build on their 79-68 victory versus rival Army as a 2.5 point home favorite on Saturday.

Consistency has been a problem for Navy with an offense that struggles shoot 40% and support a defense that allows almost 73 points per game.

John Carter Jr. led the Midshipmen scoring spree with 26 points and seven boards with George Kierman with 13 points and eight rebounds.

Navy saw eleven points and eleven rebounds from Evan Wieck followed by Hasan Abdullah with another eleven points and seven helpers.

The Loyola (MD) Greyhounds come off of a 69-65 defeat against visiting Lafayette as a five point home favorite.

Loyola (MD) is trying to avoid the Patriot League basement but have been plagued by the defensive end of the floor that has allowed 78 points per game.

The Greyhounds  received 21 points and seven rebounds from Andrew Kostecka with Isaiah Hart tossing in 15 points with four assists.

Kenneth Jones gave Loyola (MD) eleven points with Chuck Champion contributing another ten points and six boards.

Navy Midshipmen are 9-21 ATS in their last 30 road games and Navy Midshipmen are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.

Loyola (MD) Greyhounds are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400 and Loyola (MD) Greyhounds are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss.

Neither team has done well or covered spreads and it's difficult to find an advantage either way. I'll side with the points because somebody is getting them...

Pick:
Navy +5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
