What to Know

IUPUI will play host again and welcome Oakland to Indiana Farmers Coliseum, where tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET Thursday. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
The Jaguars were pulverized by the Cleveland State Vikings 89-54 on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Oakland lost to the Youngstown State Penguins at home by a decisive 85-69 margin.
IUPUI have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 12.5-point spread they are up against. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with IUPUI, who are 8-9 against the spread.
IUPUI is now 3-16 while the Golden Grizzlies sit at 7-12. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Jaguars are stumbling into the game with the 356th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 61.1 on average. Oakland has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 13th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 76.4 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
