North Carolina Center @ State of Alabama
Current record: North Carolina Central 0-3; State of Alabama 0-6
What to know
The Alabama State Hornets will return home from a five-game journey. They’ll play the North Carolina Central Eagles at 8 p.m. ET last Saturday at the Dunn-Oliver Acadome. Both teams lost their last match, so they’ll have plenty of incentive to get ‘W.’
A win for the Hornets was not attributed to the stars last Thursday as the team never even took a provisional lead. Things couldn’t be worse for them when they lost 108-82 to the Iowa Hawkeyes. The state of Alabama was certainly aware of their 27.5-point disadvantage in terms of point margin, but they knew in advance did nothing to prevent this outcome. Their loss should not obscure the performance of the front Gerald Liddell, the one with 19 points, and the guardian Christian McCray, who had 20 points. Liddell didn’t help his team much against the Iowa State Storms last Tuesday, so it’s a welcome change for him.
Meanwhile, North Carolina Central had a good run behind Iowa when they played last week, losing 86-69. Guard Randy Miller Jr. (15 points) is the player with the most goals for North Carolina Central.
Without any whistleblowers, Alabama State is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth a chance against the disparity as they are currently on a 5-game ATS win streak.
The Hornets are currently 0-6 while the Eagles sit at 0-3. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before the game begins: Alabama State is third in college basketball in points allowed per game, with an average of 84.8. North Carolina Central went through some of their own struggles when they stumbled on the 10th highest allowed score per game in college basketball, a dropped average of 82. Possibly one these Achilles heels will hinder the losing team.
