William & Mary @ Radford
Current Records: William & Mary 0-5; Radford 1-4
What to Know
The William & Mary Tribe will take on the Radford Highlanders at 5 p.m. ET Wednesday at Dedmon Center. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.
William & Mary was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Sunday as they fell 82-76 to the Howard Bison.
Meanwhile, Radford received a tough blow this past Saturday as they fell 47-33 to the Navy Midshipmen.
The Tribe are expected to lose this next one by 5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in all their past five games, so buyers beware.
The losses put William & Mary at 0-5 and Radford at 1-4. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: William & Mary has allowed their opponents to shoot 50.20% from the floor on average, which is the second highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Highlanders have experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 36.70% percent of their shots, which is the second lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
