What to Know

Last Thursday, the Stags didn't have too much trouble with the Broncs at home as they won 84-67. The over/under was set at 151 points, so nice work oddsmakers; you were right on the money.

Meanwhile, the matchup between St. Peter's and the Bobcats on Thursday hardly resembled the 58-51 effort from their previous meeting. The Peacocks fell 84-73 to the Bobcats. St. Peter's loss continues a disappointing trend for the squad, making it three in a row.
