Niagara @ Bucknell

Current Records: Niagara 0-1; Bucknell 1-0

What to Know
The Bucknell Bison have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Niagara Purple Eagles at 4 p.m. ET Nov. 12 at Sojka Pavilion. The Bison have the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency.

Bucknell took their game at home on Monday with ease, bagging a 113-52 win over the Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen.

Meanwhile, Niagara was expected to have a tough go of it on Monday, and that's exactly how things played out. They have to be aching after a bruising 71-49 loss to the Maryland Terrapins. Braxton Bayless (14 points) and Sam Iorio (12 points) were the top scorers for Niagara.

Bucknell is now 1-0 while Niagara sits at a mirror-image 0-1. A pair of last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Bison enter the contest with 71.2 points per game on average, good for fourth best in college basketball. On the other end of the spectrum, the Purple Eagles are stumbling into the matchup with the 355th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 67.4 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Niagara.

How To Watch
When: Saturday at 4 p.m. ET
Where: Sojka Pavilion -- Lewisburg, Pennsylvania

Odds
The Bison are a 3.5-point favorite against the Purple Eagles, according to the latest college basketball odds.

At least NU shot 5-13 from the 3. Should have been much better. Moore seems like he has the best outside shot. NU rarely uses the big guys . Tough playing against two 6’10” + guys.
Thomasson needs to play better.

NU's ball movement creates a lot of open looks , however , we don't have the shooters to capitalize on it .

Sounds like Ilorio is in an island. Good to hear NU is hitting some 3’s with a three guard look.
