Mississippi Valley State is now 1-16 while the Tigers sit at 4-12. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Delta Devils are stumbling into the game with the 363rd fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 54.6 on average. Texas Southern has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 41.40% percent of their shots, which is the 31st lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
