Coastal Carolina Looking To Build Off Win
Coastal Carolina has had a decent performance this year through 28 games. They started the year with a 6–7 non-conference record, followed by a 6–9 mark in Sun Belt play. Most recently, they’ve been all over the place. The program had a four-game winning streak in the middle of their conference schedule, then lost three straight before winning their last game against South Alabama.
With all that said, the Chanticleers do have some things to build off of. For instance, Demario Beck, one of Coastal Carolina’s best players, hit a buzzer-beating lay-up against South Alabama to break their three-game losing streak. Beck is one of four players on the roster to average more than 10 points per game.
Per Covers, the team has zero players on Thursday’s injury report.
Trojans Without Top Scorer
Little Rock has had a rough performance this year through 27 games. They started the year with just three wins during non-conference play, followed by a 3–11 mark in Sun Belt play. In total, only five of their six wins have come against D-1 competition. Most recently, the Trojans are actually coming off a win — an 82–78 victory over Arkansas State. The win snapped an eight-game losing streak.
With all that said, the Trojans have a tough time scoring points. Of all 12 teams in the Sun Belt, Little Rock is scoring the least amount of points per game (64.1) which is more than 20 less than the №1-ranked team (Louisiana). In fact, of all 351 D-1 teams, they rank all the way at №341 in scoring. Only one player, Andre Jones, is posting a scoring average of more than 10 points per game. Unfortunately, Jones was recently ruled out for the season because of a suspension.
- 3-0 ATS in their last 3 games vs. Little Rock.
- 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
Thursday night will be a showcase of the Sun Belt Conference as every team will hit the floor for a conference game. Our contest, Coastal Carolina versus Little Rock, will kick off at 8 P.M ET and will be just the fourth meeting all-time between them.
Betting-wise, you’ve gotta take Coastal Carolina. While not eye-popping, their 12 wins show they know how to win while Little Rock has struggled all season. Plus, the Trojans will be without their only double-digit scorer.
