Current Records: Army West Point 5-6; Stony Brook 3-8
What to Know
The Army West Point Black Knights are on the road again Sunday and play against the Stony Brook Seawolves at 1 p.m. ET Dec. 18 at Island Federal Credit Union Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
The Black Knights came up short against the Rhode Island Rams two weeks ago, falling 77-67. Jalen Rucker had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 11 points on 5-for-18 shooting in his 36 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Stony Brook as they fell 58-55 to the Wagner Seahawks this past Thursday.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Army is expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 1-4 against the spread when favored.
Army is now 5-6 while Stony Brook sits at 3-8. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Army is 30th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11.3 on average. The Seawolves have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the matchup with the 359th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 9.6 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
