What to Know

After three games on the road, Coastal Carolina is heading back home. They and the Georgia Southern Eagles will face off in a Sun Belt battle at 7:00 p.m. ET on Thursday at HTC Center. Coastal Carolina is the slight favorite, but fans should be in for an exciting game likely to go down to the wire.

Last Wednesday, the Chanticleers were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap as they fell 79-75 to the Warhawks.

Meanwhile, Georgia Southern's recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Saturday after their fourth straight loss. They were just a bucket shy of victory and fell 82-81 to the Bulls.

The Chanticleers' defeat was their sixth straight on the road, which dropped their record down to 6-17. As for the Eagles, they have been struggling recently as they've lost five of their last six contests, which put a noticeable dent in their 5-20 record this season.

Thursday's match is shaping up to be a scrappy contest: Coastal Carolina have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 40.2 rebounds per game. It's a different story for Georgia Southern, though, as they've been averaging only 33.1 rebounds per game. Given Coastal Carolina's sizable advantage in that area, the Eagles will need to find a way to close that gap.
