Southeast Missouri State Redhawks

The Southeast Missouri State Redhawksย are on a struggle lately losing three straight games. Consistency has been a problem for the Redhawks recently but it had gone to a downward spiral recently. Chris Harris has been leading the team in scoring with 15 points to go with 3 rebounds per game. He has only played two games so far and the Redhawks look to start something well with him in the team. Harris has become the marked man for the Redhawks and the defense chews him up forcing him to turn the ball over five times per game.

Alex Caldwell will give Harris the necessary support as he can provide additional scoring averaging 10.5 points per night. This is going to be a tough night for the Redhawks as they face the Buckeyes. They would need more than Harris and Caldwell doing great for the team. It would be a big question if the role players led by Sage Tolbert along with DQ Nicholas and Skyler Hogan how much they can contribute to an inch in closer to their opponents.ย

Ohio State Buckeyes

After winning nine straight games, the Buckeyes had a setback buy losing to the Minnesota Golden Gophers by 13 points just this December 15.

He also shot an impressive 42% from the three-point arc. He had good support from Duane Washington and DJ Carton who are both averaging double figures per night. Kyle Young has been a great support for the teamโ€™s scoring core doing 8.6 points and 7.2 rebounds.
