Why do panthers cover
FIU is 43-2 in non-conference games the past two years and has averaged 80 points in its four straight wins. That included a win over Division THREE Trinity, but 12 players played at least 12 minutes in that game. It also beat Ball State and Green Bay, with three Panthers scoring in double figures, led by Tevan Brewer (16.6 points per game). Brewer is shooting 51.7 percent (15-of-29) from 3-point range and averaging 4.8 assists per game.
The Panthers have youth and depth, and freshman Denver Jones (11.2 points, 4.4 assists) has made an immediate impact among them. Sophomore Javaunte Hawkins added 15 points Sunday in place of Daniel Parrish, who scored 15 points in his only game. Cliven Brown scored a game-high 18 points Sunday, while Brewer and Jones each added 14. Brown is the leading rebounder (5.4) with 2.2 blocks per game, while Brewer has a team-high 22 defensive rebounds. The Panthers are averaging 8.2 steals per game.
Why do battle eagles cover
North Dakota is 2-3 ATS this season, but things have been improving since coach Paul Sather took over in 2019. The Fighting Eagles went 15-18 in his first season and 9-17 in his second, but they went 8-8 in the Summit League after going 7-9 in 2019-20. In its five games, three different players have led the team in scoring, including Paul Bruns, who scored 13 points in game 1. The freshman is averaging eight points per game, one of seven players to average at least five points per game.
Caleb Niro leads the league in scoring with 15.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game, while Mitchell Suker averages 13.2 points per game. Sueker is sneaky on the perimeter, shooting 5 of 12 from 3-point range (41.7 percent). The Fighting Eagles didn’t shoot well, but guard Matt Norman shot 42.3 percent (11-of-26) from beyond the arc. Tsotne Tsartsidze was relentless on the boards, averaging 6.2 rebounds per game and 15 of his 31 rebounds coming on the offensive end.
