Indiana State Sycamores are averaging 88 points per game and have a record of 1-1 in their last 3 matchups against the Rice Owls. Robbie Avila led the Sycamores in their last game with 16 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists. Despite the team's offensive success, their average 79.50 points per game defensivly is unimpressive. Indiana State needs to limit points to Rice if they want to secure their third win in the last four games.

Indiana State Sycamores Off to Impressive 2-1 Start

The Sycamores have started off 2-1 with impressive offensive numbers, averaging 85 points per game on over 55 percent shooting. Their ability to find open players and attack the glass gives them extra chances to score. They also protect the ball well, limiting their opponent's easy scoring opportunities. Rice has had difficulties defensively, allowing over 80 points per game. Their poor offensive rebounding keeps them from having second-chance opportunities. Indiana State has proved to be a strong defensive team, allowing fewer than 65 points in two of their three games. The Sycamores should be able to keep Rice's offense in check, making them the predicted spread covering team.
