What to Know

The Howard Bison will hit the road for the fourth straight game as they head to Smith-Hammond-Middleton Center at 7:30 p.m. ET Monday. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.

The Bison came up short against the North Carolina Central Eagles this past Saturday, falling 68-60.

Meanwhile, the South Carolina State Bulldogs received a tough blow this past Saturday as they fell 88-76 to the Norfolk State Spartans.

Howard is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

Howard is now 17-12 while the Bulldogs sit at 5-23. The Bison are 7-4 after losses this year, South Carolina State 4-18.
