The Winthrop Eagles have a legitimate chance to obtain second place within the Big South conference this season as they are currently in third place. However, after losing two straight games, they were able to get back on track as they picked up a win over the Buccaneers of Charleston Southern in their last time out as they need overtime along with 20 points from Adam Pickett to pick up the much-needed win.
The Hampton Pirates will simply be looking to end the season on a strong note as they have dropped five of their last seven games, overall. However, they will be looking for their third straight victory after picking up a win over the Radford Highlanders in their most recently outing to win only their second road game in five contests.
While the defense for the Eagles have been inconsistent in their last three outings, they were able to pick up a big win over the Buccaneers in their last time out thanks to Pickett, as stated, leading the team with 20 points on the night.
