The Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers and the Wagner Seahawks meet in NEC college basketball action from the Spiro Sports Center on Tuesday night.
The Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers will try to make some moves in the NEC Standings despite dropping 3 straight and 5 of their last 6 to fall to 6-7 in conference after a 70-55 loss to Saint Francis last time out. Damian Chong Qui leads the Mountaineers with 12.3 points and 3.8 assists per game while Jalen Gibbs and Vado Morse each have 11+ points per game this season to make up the trio of double-digit scorers for Mount St. Mary’s this season. Malik Jefferson leads the Mountaineers on the glass with 7.5 rebounds to go along with his 9.4 points per game this season. As a team, Mount St. Mary’s is averaging 64.3 points on 39.6% shooting from the field, 30.5% from behind the arc and 69.1% from the foul line while allowing opposing teams to average 66.2 points on 42.9% shooting from the field and 34.7% from behind the 3-point line this season. Mount St. Mary’s is 3-11 straight up and 6-6-1 against the spread on the road this season.
The Wagner Seahawks will try to climb out of the basement in the NEC, sitting at 2-11 in conference play after a 7th straight loss coming in the form of a 68-59 loss to Merrimack last time out. Curtis Cobb III leads the Seahawks in scoring with 16.6 points per game while Alex Morales is 2nd in scoring with 13.2 points and tops in assists with 3.4 assists per game this season. Elijah Ford leads Wagner in rebounding with 5.5 rebounds per game this season. As a team, Wagner is averaging 68.6 points on 41.1% shooting from the field, 32% from behind the arc and 72.9% from the foul line while allowing opposing teams to average 77.8 points on 46.5% shooting from the field and 39.5% from behind the 3-point line this season. Wagner is 3-7 straight up and 3-6 against the spread at home this season.
Head-to-head, the road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
I get the line being tight because Wagner is at home and Mount St. Mary’s hasn’t been much to write home about on the road, but the fact is that the Seahawks can’t cover a number to save their proverbial lives as of late, and I just don’t see It changing here. The Mountaineers have struggled lately, but Wagner has been playing worse and I just think the Mountaineers escape with a win in this one.
