Current Records: Bellarmine 13-16; Jacksonville 13-14
What to Know
The Bellarmine Knights are 4-0 against the Jacksonville Dolphins since February of 2021, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Wednesday. Bellarmine and Jacksonville will face off in an Atlantic Sun battle at 5 p.m. ET at Swisher Gym. The Knights should still be riding high after a win, while the Dolphins will be looking to right the ship.
Bellarmine escaped with a win on Sunday against the Cent. Arkansas Bears by the margin of a single free throw, 68-67.
Speaking of close games: Jacksonville was close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 62-59 to the Lipscomb Bisons.
Bellarmine is expected to lose this next one by 5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
The Knights are now 13-16 while the Dolphins sit at 13-14. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Bellarmine is stumbling into the game with the 36th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 66.4 on average. Jacksonvilles have had an even harder time: they are sixth worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 63.9 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
