Eastern Illinois @ Albany
Current Record: Eastern Illinois 1-4; Albany 0-5
What to know
Albany Great Danes will play the East Illinois Panthers at 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday at McBrayer Arena. Both teams have been wiped out in their previous matches and will be looking to bounce back in a big way.
Looks like Great Danes had the smaller half of the collarbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They found themselves the reluctant ones to take an unfortunate 86-61 punch in the gut against the Kentucky Wildcats on Monday. Albany was certainly aware of their 28-point disadvantage in terms of score odds, but foreknowledge did nothing to prevent this outcome.
As for the EIU, it looks like they got a smaller clavicle halves at Thanksgiving dinner. They were completely overpowered by the Eastern Kentucky Colonels en route and fell 82-43.
Great Denmark is currently 0-5 while the Panthers sit at 1-4. A few offensive stats to keep in mind as you watch: Albany is fifth in college basketball in points per game, with just 59.6 averages. The EIU went through some of their own struggles as they stumbled on the seventh-lowest points per game in college basketball, amassing only 60 points on average. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will get in the way of the losing team.
