The Hawks of St. Joseph’s continue to fall within the Atlantic 10 standings due to struggles on both ends of the floor. Their offense is shooting just 40% from the floor per outing, while the defense is coming off an outing to where they allowed 83 points to a 7-win Lasalle Explorers team.
The Saint Louis Bilikens can potentially be a dangerous team if they are able to get more offensive production from their playmakers.
However, they took a step in the right direction by picking up a victory over a solid Dayton Flyers team at home, despite shooting just 42% as a team.
St. Joseph’s Hawks
Despite the Hawks shooting just 32% from three-point range on the season, they were able to connect on 14 attempts (54%) from long range in a win versus Lasalle, most recently.
Lorenzo Edwards provided a huge lift for St. Joseph’s in scoring 22 points. Leading scorer, Charlie Brown, Jr., ended with 19 points and five dimes.
Brown Jr. (19 ppg) has proven that he deserves to have the ball in his hand. Most impressive is that Brown Jr. is averaging 38% shooting from three point range this season. Also, Edwards scored in double digits for the second straight game for the Hawks in going a perfect 6-6 from long range versus the Explorers.
The Hawks have lost seven of their last ten games. Furthermore, their offense currently ranks as one of the worst in the league in points scored along with field goal percentage.
Fortunately, St Joseph’s has picked up victories in their last three home games, despite averaging just 64 points per contest.
Saint Louis Bilikens
The Saint Louis Bilikens’ offense has been just as inconsistent as they are averaging just 41% shooting from the field per game on the season.
Guard Javon Bess has been their most consistent player in averaging 15 points per game. However, the 6’6” guard has been very inconsistent to the point where one does not know who will show up on a nightly basis.
DJ Foreman (6.2 ppg) is coming off an 18-point outing versus the A10’s 3rd ranked team in the Dayton Flyers as he also pulled down 9 rebounds.
Finally, Hasaan French is a double-double machine as he posts just 9 points per game while having at least 12 points and 10 rebounds in three of the last four games for the Bilikens.

Free Saint Louis Bilikens vs St. Joseph’s Hawks NCAAB Prediction:
Expect this matchup to be a low scoring affair amongst these two Atlantic 10 squads. As stated, both offenses shoot 41% from the floor, or worse, per outing. Also, the defense for the Bilikens will certainly bring the focus as they have dropped four of their last five games.
Look for the Hawks to struggle on both ends of the floor as Saint Louis will get by in a squeaker by a 67-60 score on the road.
4* Free NCAAB Betting Pick: Under 132
The under has been the play in the majority of recent games for each of these squads. It is for this reason that I look for the defense for the Bilikens to set the tone early in limiting offensive opportunities for an awful Hawks team.
Despite St. Louis have some playmakers, they will score just enough to pick up a win and move on. .
