What to Know

After 11 games on the road, the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils are heading back home. The Delta Devils and the Prairie View A&M Panthers will face off in an SWAC battle at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at Harrison Complex. Mississippi Valley State has some work to do to even out the 3-12 series between these two since January of 2016, but a win here would be a good start.

Mississippi Valley State came up short against the Alabama A&M Bulldogs on Wednesday, falling 75-68.

Meanwhile, Prairie View A&M entered their contest against the Southern Jaguars on Wednesday without any home losses -- but there's a first time for everything. Prairie View A&M fell just short of Southern by a score of 66-62. The game was as close as the oddsmakers predicted, but the Panthers had been the slight favorite coming in.

The Delta Devils are now 1-15 while Prairie View A&M sits at 5-10. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Mississippi Valley State is 363rd worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 54.3 on average. 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 15th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
