Old Dominion will be strutting in after a win while Texas-El Paso will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Old Dominion entered their matchup on Thursday as the heavy favorite, and they fully lived up to expectations. They steamrolled past the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners 83-51 at home. Old Dominion can attribute much of their success to guard Jaylin Hunter, who had 16 points and seven assists, and forward Austin Trice, who had 19 points.

The Monarchs’ victory brought them up to 7-8 while Texas-El Paso’s loss pulled them down to 8-8. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: Old Dominion is 51st worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 66.7 on average. The Miners have experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 41% percent of their shots, which is the 35th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
