Jacksonville State Gamecocks

It has been a struggle for the Gamecocks (1-3, 0-0 in OVC) in their first four games of the 2019 NCAA men’s basketball tournament. After winning their game against Brescia by a whopping 70 points more than two weeks ago, they succumbed to back-to-back losses against Virginia Commonwealth (65-93) and Purdue (49-81) by an average of 30 points. In their last game against the Boilermakers as part of the Emerald Coast Classic, Jacksonville State went off to a poor start, scoring only 20 points in the first half and allowed Purdue to score 45 en route to a 32-point annihilation. They had no answer to 7-foot-3 Purdue slotman Matt Haarms, who went berserk against the smaller Gamecocks, tallying 17 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks.

De’Torrion Ware came off the bench to lead Jacksonville State with 13 markers and five boards. The Jackson State Gamecocks shot a paltry 27% from the field and allowed the Boilermakers to lead by as many as 39 points.

Players to Watch: D. Ware (12.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 0.8 APG); J Cross (9.3 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 0.8 SPG); K Henry (9.3 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 0.3 APG).

Chicago State Cougars

The Cougars (3-4, 0-0 in WAC) were at the wrong end of a record-setting night by the Florida State Seminoles at the Donald L. Tucker Center on Monday. Chicago State fell victim to a 56-113 drubbing by Florida State in what had been the largest margin of victory by the hosts since they transferred to the indoor arena in 1981. The loss broke the Cougars’ two-game winning streak and cost them a chance to take the solo leadership in the Western Athletic Conference. Chicago State coughed up 22 turnovers and was intimidated by the length of Florida State’s defense, only connecting on 36.5% of their shots (19 of 52 from the field).

Andrew Lewis was the bright spot for the Cougars, producing 18 points while Solomon Hunt finished with 10 markers and five rebounds. The team’s top scorer, Xavier Johnson, likewise fell prey to the Seminoles’ defense, as he was limited to nine points on 3 of 10 field goal shooting and coughed up seven TOs.

Players to Watch: X. Johnson (16.4 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 3.9 APG); A. Lewis (13.6 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 2.1 APG); J. Colley (9.6 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 0.7 APG).
