What to Know
The Jacksonville Dolphins and the Eastern Kentucky Colonels will face off in an Atlantic Sun clash at 7 p.m. ET Feb. 24 at Swisher Gym. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
The Dolphins were close but no cigar on Wednesday as they fell 63-61 to the Bellarmine Knights.
Meanwhile, Eastern Kentucky lost to the North Florida Ospreys on the road by a decisive 77-64 margin.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Jacksonville is expected to win a tight contest Friday. Their home court has been no bettor's paradise, though, as they've failed to beat the spread in six of their 12 home games.
Jacksonville had enough points to win and then some against Eastern Kentucky when the two teams previously met in February of last year, taking their matchup 81-68. Will Jacksonville repeat their success, or do the Colonels have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
