Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns are rolling, having won three of their last four games. They hope to extend their win streak to three but will need everyone to step up. Mylik Wilson and Jalen Johnson need to replicate their performance last time out against the Eagles. However, a problem for Louisiana-Lafayette is their sub-par defense. They need to put up a better defensive stance if they want to turn things in their favor on Monday.

Players to watch: J. Johnson F (32 GP 33.9 MIN 15.3 PTS 6.7 REB 0.8 AST 0.7 STL 0.7 BLK 1.9 TO 41.9 FG% 82.6 FT% 27.9 3PT%), C. Russell G (31 GP 33.5 MIN 14.1 PTS 3.7 REB 2.2 AST 0.9 STL 0.1 BLK 2.1 TO 40.7 FG% 77.6 FT% 34 3PT%), M. Wilson G (28 GP 34.2 MIN 11.6 PTS 5.7 REB 2.9 AST 2.4 STL 0.6 BLK 2.8 TO 47.9 FG% 70.6 FT% 36.8 3PT%.

Georgia Southern Eagles

The Eagles hope to bounce back following a loss to Arkansas State. Ike Smith and Isaiah Crawley are tasked to lead the way anew for a team that has several players who can explode. But like the Ragin’ Cajuns, the defense needs improvement. They have been struggling, allowing opponents 70.6 points per game. These are numbers they cannot afford to give up on Monday.

Players to watch: I. Smith G (30 GP 29.9 MIN 14.2 PTS 5.6 REB 2.1 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 2 TO 42.7 FG% 65.9 FT% 33.5 3PT%), Q. Jackson G (31 GP 32.6 MIN 13.4 PTS 4.5 REB 1.5 AST 2.5 STL 0.4 BLK 1.8 TO 39.3 FG% 66.4 FT% 28.7 3PT%), I. Crawley F (27 GP 29 MIN 13.2 PTS 6.3 REB 1.9 AST 0.7 STL 0.4 BLK 2.1 TO 57.2 FG% 68.5 FT% 34.4 3PT%).
