What to Know
The Alcorn State Braves and the Prairie View A&M Panthers are set to clash at 9:30 p.m. ET March 9 at Bartow Arena in the first round of the Southwestern Athletic Conference Tourney. Alcorn State will be strutting in after a victory while the Panthers will be stumbling in from a defeat.
Alcorn State took their matchup against the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions on Saturday by a conclusive 100-77 score.
Meanwhile, Prairie View A&M was just a bucket short of a win on Saturday and fell 78-77 to the Texas Southern Tigers. The loss was just more heartbreak for Prairie View A&M, who fell 75-74 when the teams previously met in January.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Alcorn State is expected to win a tight contest on Wednesday. They covered a 10.5-point spread on Saturday, so bettors might be thinking that will translate to further success against a lower spread.
The Braves came out on top in a nail-biter against the Panthers when the two teams last met earlier in the regular season, sneaking past 72-69. Will Alcorn State repeat their success, or does Prairie View A&M have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
