This American Athletic Conference game features the Connecticut Huskies and the Temple Owls.
In the last meeting between these two teams, UConn upset Temple by a score of 72-66.
The Huskies are having an average season at best so far. They are 4-5 in the conference and sit 7th in the standings. Going into this game gives them a huge opportunity to close the gap for one of the top seeds in conference. Of course seeding is very important when it comes to the conference tournament, so it is vital the Huskies find a win in this game.
The Huskies offense is averaging 78.1 points per game this season, which is actually not half bad. Their leading scorer is Jalen Adams, who is averaging 17.7 points per game. The Huskies have two other players who are averaging in double figures, but after that the offensive production drops off. For the Huskies to win this game, they will likely need to have several players score 10 or more points. If Adams is the only one who has a big game, the Huskies will likely have trouble keeping up with the Temple offense on their home floor.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Huskies are allowing an average of 70.5 points per game. This is 159th, but 70.5 still quite low. Their biggest strength this season is defending the three point line. Opponents are only shooting 30.1% from deep range, which is good for 27th in the country. Look for the Huskies to force Temple into either taking contested three points shots or force them to drive and score inside the paint.
The Owls are having a very solid season as they are sitting 10 games over .500 and are 6-3 in the conference. They still have an outside shot of winning the regular season title, but they will need a win here to keep them within reach.
The Owls offense is not all that special as they only average 74.9 points per game. They are at home however, where they are averaging 76.3 points per game. Look for Shizz Alston Jr. to have a huge game and continue to help the Owls move up in the AAC standings
The Owls defense is similar to the Huskies as they allow about 70.9 points per game. The main key for the defense is slowing down Jalen Adams and forcing turnovers to get easy baskets.
CBB Betting Trends:
- UCONN are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games.
