The Mean Green are one of the best defensive teams in the country, holding opponents to 58.4 points per game. They held the Aggies to 68 points in their last game and will need to continue playing well defensively to pick up the win.

Mavericks Going For Third Win In Four Games

The Mavericks have played well since they snapped their three-game losing streak, winning two of their last three games. They will be going for their second win in a row and third win in their last four games when they face the Mean Green on Monday.

UT Arlington is averaging 70.3 points per game, shooting 41 percent from the field and 32 percent from three-point range. They finished with 77 points in their last game and will need a similar performance to beat the Mean Green.

Rating:

The Mean Green have done a great job on the defensive end, holding opponents to 58.4 points per game, but they have been unable to capitalize on their good defense because they have played poorly offensively, averaging 59.3 points per game. With the team unable to score consistently, they will have a hard time keeping up with the Mavericks, who are averaging 70.3 points per game. The Mavericks have also played well defensively, holding opponents to 65.1 points per game. With the Mean Green averaging fewer than 60 points per game, the Mavericks shouldn’t have any problem slowing them down.
