St. Joe’s meets Duquesne in Atlantic 10 action from Pittsburgh on Saturday night. The Hawks are 0-3 in the Atlantic 10, while the Dukes are 1-1.

Hawks are not flying

St. Joe’s has lost three straight games after winning two straight. They fell to George Mason and George Washington at home, before losing at St. Bonaventure, 73-47 on Wednesday. Lamarr Kimble scored 16 points to lead the Hawks who shot a pitiful 29.1 percent from the floor. and went 5-of-25 (20%) from long distance. The Hawks were also outrebounded by 13 and allowed the Bonnies to shoot 52.7 percent from the floor. The Hawks were never in this one and scored just 12 points in the first half and shot 18 percent from the field.

The offense has been dreadful in this slump, averaging 54.3 points per game over their last three. Before they entered conference play, the Hawks had won three of four games and did beat Princeton, Wagner, Loyola-Chicago and Illinois-Chicago. Charlie Brown Jr. leads the Hawks with 19.6 points per game and 44.7 percent shooting. The offense averages 70.3 points per game overall, on 41 percent shooting (32.7% 3pt). They allow 72.5 points per game on 43.5 percent shooting (36.4% 3pt).

Dukes are searching for consistency

You can pretty much say that every season at Duquesne. St. Bonaventure used to be at the bottom of the A-10 and now they are a contender. Duquesne did win four straight games in non-conference play but since a 73-67 loss to Penn State, they have gone 2-2. The Dukes beat Fordham in their last game at home, 66-61 on Wednesday. Eric Williams Jr. led the Dukes with 16 points and 13 rebounds, while Marcus Weathers added 12 points. Duquesne shot 46.8 percent from the field and just 6-of-21 from beyond the arc.

Williams Jr. leads the Dukes with 13.5 points per game and 7.8 rebounds. Duquesne averages 73.1 points per game on 42.8 percent shooting (31.2% 3pt). They allow 70.1 points per game on 43 percent shooting (36.4% 3pt).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

You have to wonder whether Phil Martelli’s days are numbered. He always seems to get through the tough times but at 64, he might be near the end of the line. They were embarrassed at St. Bonaventure, who are good but they aren’t Duke. The Dukes are a capable team at home led by Williams at 9-1. St. Joe’s is 1-3 on the road and 2-5 away from home.

Prediction: Duquesne

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

St. Joe’s put up 47 points in their last game but that wasn’t a fluke because they are putting up less than 55 in their last three games.  The Dukes are solid on defnese as is St. Joe’s, who is shooting just 41 percent from the field overall.Duquesne is 6-2 Under their last 8 after an ATS loss. St. Joe’s is 6-0 Under their last 6 overall.

Prediction: Under
