NCAA BB | Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans (5-6) at Memphis Tigers (5-5)
Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

The Little Rock Trojans and the Memphis Tigers will meet up on the college basketball court Wednesday. 

Little Rock comes into this game with a 5-6 record overall. The Trojans have thus far recorded victories over Southeastern Oklahoma, Tennessee State, Howard, Sam Houston and Miles College. 

In the Golden Bears game, Little Rock’s Rayjon Tucker put up a double-double on 18 points and 12 rebounds, and Nikola Maric added 16 points with three rebounds and three assists as the only other Trojan in double-figures. 

Over on the Memphis side, they’re 5-5 this season. The Tigers’ losses have come courtesy of LSU, Oklahoma State, Charleston, Texas Tech and Tennessee thus far. 

In the Volunteers game, Memphis’ Kyvon Davenport piled on 31 points with 11 rebounds and two assists. The only other Tigers player in double-figures there was Tyler Harris with 10 points, three assists and two rebounds. 

The Trojans are 7-0 ATS in their last seven versus the American Athletic and 1-4 in their last five non-conference games. Little Rock is also 1-4 ATS in their last five overall and 1-6 ATS in their last seven Wednesday games. 

Meanwhile, the Tigers are 5-0 ATS in their last five following an ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Memphis is 4-1-1 ATS in their last six overall and 2-5 ATS in their last seven Wednesday games. 

Little Rock is just 2-2 in their last four games, but even in the losses the Trojans were still pretty competitive. Memphis’ offense may be a bit much for Little Rock to handle however, so I’m going with the Tigers here.

Pick:
Memphis Tigers -15
