Evansville is now 1-1 while Belmont sits at 0-1. A pair of last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Evansville is stumbling into the contest with the third fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 64.8 on average. But the Bruins are ninth worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 69.1 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
