Arkansas will face off in an Atlantic Sun battle at 4 p.m. ET at Freedom Hall. Neither of these teams found much success offensively their last time out, scoring well below their season averages.
The matchup between the Knights and the North Alabama Lions on Thursday was not a total blowout, but with Bellarmine falling 70-57 at home, it was darn close to turning into one.

Bellarmine is now 12-16 while the Bears sit at 9-19. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Bellarmine is 37th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 66.3 on average. Cent. Arkansas has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 359th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 81.6 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
