The Davidson Wildcats will host the Duquense Dukes for some Atlantic 10 action this Monday evening.
Davidson will likely be heavily favored to win at home here.
Duquense continues to struggle, and their coming off of their nine straight loss. The Dukes possibly squandered their last chance at a win facing a shorthanded Fordham team at home, losing 65-54.
Leon Ayers III leads the team in scoring (11.4) after coming over for Mercer this past summer. The 6’5 guard scored 23 or more points in wins over Bradley, American, and UC Irvine, but he’s been a bit underwhelming since the start of conference play.
Transfers Kevin Easley Jr. (TCU) and Tre Williams (Indiana State) start up front for Duquense. Easley Jr. is a work horse who leads the team in minutes, while scoring 10.8 ppg and grabbing 6.2 rpg. Williams double-doubled in the loss to DePaul and he leads Duquense in rebounding (6.6).
Freshman guards Amir Spears and Jackie Johnson III have given the backcourt some more life. Spears is second on the team in scoring (11.3). Johnson III has started to receive more playing time, after scoring career-high 27 points in the win over UMass.
Davidson has been on tear since beginning the season 1-2. The Wildcats have won 18 off their last 20 games, including a strong-road victory over Alabama. This team has a been very profitable and they have a chance to make a deep run this March.
The Wildcats are one of the most efficient teams in the country, scoring 76.4 ppg, while shooting 48.7% from the field. They also shoot 38.6% from deep, which is good for second in the nation.
Their powered by the international tandem of Hyunjung Lee and veteran Luka Brajkovic. Lee had a quiet game in the first meeting with VCU, but he leads the team in scoring (15.6), while grabbing 6.2 rpg.
Brajkovic remains consistent as ever in year four, and he scored a season-high 30 points and grabbed 8 boards in the last week. The 6’10 big is averaging career-bests of 15.2 ppg and 2.4 apg, while leading the Wildcats with 7.1 rpg.
Foster Loyer is fittingly a Curry-esque sniper, but he’s been improved his shot selection since the start of A-10 play. The Michigan State transfer scored a career-high 35 points and hit eight threes in the win over Northeastern, and his scoring average is up a whopping 13 points, up to a team-leading 16.1 ppg.
Michael Jones is the team’s best defender, averages 12.3 ppg and he scored a season-high 29 points in the road win over Richmond.
Sophomore forward Sam Mennenga (7.2 ppg, 5.1 rpg) completes the starting five.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Davidson is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games.
- Duquense is 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games.
- Over is 4-1 in the last 5 DUQ?DAV matchups.
Free Duquense Dukes vs. Davidson Wildcats NCAAB Prediction: Davidson to Cover
Davidson was outplayed by Rhode Island physically on Saturday, but they have a fine chance to make things right and flex their muscles here.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Davidson -13.5
This one should open pretty lofty, but the Wildcats should take care of business handily here at home. Duquense has dropped seven of their last eight games by double figures, and Davidson should have some steam to burn after the loss to URI. I like them covering the massive margin, and their team total here. It should be a dominant, bounce back win for the WIldcats.
