The Davidson Wildcats and the Saint Joseph’s Hawks meet in A-10 conference college basketball action from the Hagan Arena on Tuesday night.
The Davidson Wildcats will try to break out of a logjam in the A-10 standings, sitting at 7-5 in conference play after a 93-64 win over Saint Bonaventure last time out. Kellan Grady leads Davidson in scoring with 16.3 points per game while Jon Acel Gudmundsson is 2nd in scoring with 14 points per game with team-highs of 7.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game this season. Carter Collins and Luka Brajkovic each have double-digit scoring averages as well for the Wildcats this season. As a team, Davidson is averaging 73.1 points on 45.4% shooting from the field, 36.8% from behind the arc and 76.2% from the foul line while allowing opponents to average 66.7 points on 42.3% shooting from the field and 33% from 3-point range this season. Davidson is 4-6 straight up and 4-6 against the spread on the road this season.
The Saint Joseph’s Hawks will still be hunting for their first conference win of the season, sitting at 0-12 in A-10 play after a 73-55 loss to Rhode Island last time out. Ryan Daly leads Saint Joseph’s as the lone double-digit scoring option for the Hawks, with averages of 20.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game this season. As a team, Saint Joseph’s is averaging 69 points on 38.4% shooting from the field, 30.1% from 3-point range and 69.8% from the foul line while allowing opponents to average 80.8 points on 46.3% shooting from the field and 37.2% from the foul line this season. Saint Joseph’s is 2-9 straight up and 5-6 against the spread at home this season.
Head-to-head, the home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.
The points would be tempting given how much success the home team has had in this matchup, but the problem is that the Hawks are the worst team in the A-10 this season and have lost by double-digits more often than they haven’t this year. Davidson has had their issues and a non-cover or an outright loss wouldn’t surprise anybody with the Wildcats I don’t think, but I just don’t want anything to do with Saint Joseph’s. I’ll lay the points with Davidson on the road here.
