What to Know
The Jackson State Tigers and the Prairie View A&M Panthers are even-steven against one another since January of 2016 (7-7), but not for long. Jackson State will play host again and welcome the Panthers to Williams Center, where tip-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET Monday. The two teams each escaped (but just barely!) with wins against their previous opponents.
This past Saturday, Jackson State narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the Texas Southern Tigers 71-69. Having forecasted a close victory for Jackson State, the oddsmakers were right on the money.
Speaking of close games: the Alcorn State Braves typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday Prairie View A&M proved too difficult a challenge. Prairie View A&M skirted past the Braves 75-71.
Jackson State is now 10-18 while the Panthers sit at 12-17. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Jackson State has allowed their opponents to shoot 46.90% from the floor on average, which is the 11th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. Prairie View A&M has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 40.70% percent of their shots, which is the eighth lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
