The Southern Conference Tournament kicks off on Friday night in Asheville, North Carolina. The second game of the night is a 7/10 match up.
The Virginia Military Institute Keydets take on the Samford Bulldogs. The winner will move on to play Furman on Saturday. This is the the second match up of the two teams this season. The Bulldogs won the first match up 80-61.
The VMI Keydets have never been considered a great program, but this season was a disappointment, even for their standards.
They come into this game with a record of 6-23 which finished them in 10th place in the Southern Conference. They come into this game on a six game losing streak. Four of those six loses were by over 10 points.
The Keydets issues really come on both sides of the ball. They only score 68.4 points per night and shoot 41.6 percent from the field, both of those are very poor.
On the defensive side of the ball they struggle even more. They give up over 80 points a game. Their opponents shoot over 49 percent from the field and over 40 percent from three. Not may teams can win games when they are giving up over 80 points a game.
The Samford Bulldogs have had a very up and down season thus far. They have had some big wins over good teams and also lost to some teams they should have won.
They come into this game with a record 17-14 and finished in 7th place in the Southern Conference. They are on a a bit of a slide as of late. They have lost two games in a row and six of their last eight.
The Bulldogs strength is on the offensive side of the floor. They average over 79 points per game well shooting 46.3 percent from the field. They also shoot over 40 percent from behind the three point line.
The Bulldogs need to use that to their advantage on Friday night. They need to push the pace and really try and fire up a lot of good quality shots in this game.
