St. Joseph’s Hawks
St. Joe’s hasn’t been consistent at all this season, but they’ve been competitive. The Hawks have won two of their last three games, and covered four times in a row. They defeated Fordham at home last time out, 72-69.
Jordan Hall is one of the more versatile players in the country, and his play will heavily effect the outcome of this game. The 6’7 swingman flirted with another triple double against George Mason (15/9/9) and followed it up with a double-double in the win over Duquense.
Hall leads the Hawks in scoring (15.2) and assists (6.5), while grabbing 6.9 rpg.
Taylor Funk chose to stay in Philly for a fifth-year, and it’s paying off for the Hawks. The 6’8 forward put up personal bests of 29 points and eight three points in the win over Georgetown, and he’s second on the team in scoring (14.7), while tying the team lead with 7.2 rpg.
Ejike Obinna was a big addition through the transfer portal, both figuratively and literally. The former Vanderbilt big double-doubled in the road win over Richmond, and his matchup with Osun Osunniyi will be one to watch.
Cameron Brown and Erik Reynolds II join the talented trio in the starting five, and they both had strong outings versus Richmond. Reynolds II scored a season-best 17 points, while Brown posted his first double-double of his career.
Davidson has been on tear since beginning the season 1-2. The Wildcats have won 18 off their last 19 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 77.3 ppg, while shooting 49.8% from the field. They also shoot 41.6% 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 (16.2), while grabbing 6.7 rpg.
Brajkovic remains consistent as ever in year four, and he scored 19 points and grabbed 5 boards against VCU last week. The 6’10 big is averaging career-bests of 13.9 ppg and 2.3 apg, while leading the Wildcats with 6.8 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 15.7 ppg.
Michael Jones is the team’s best defender, averages 12.8 ppg and he scored a season-high 29 points in the road win over Richmond.

- Davidson is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games.
