When: Saturday, February 16, 3:00 PM. ET.

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers will be going for their sixth consecutive win when they wrap up the regular season against the UAB Blazers on Saturday afternoon.

Blazers Going For Second Consecutive Win

The Blazers managed to snap their four-game losing streak with a win over Marshall in their last game. They will be trying to build on the win and finish the regular season on a high note with a win over the Hilltoppers, which will give them their second win in a row.

The Blazers have done a better job on the defensive end and are holding opponents to 67.6 points per game. They held Marshall to 68 points and will need a similar performance to get past the Hilltoppers on Saturday.

Hilltoppers Have Eyes On Conference Title

The Hilltoppers are trying to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive and can improve their chances of making the tournament by winning the Conference USA regular-season title. They are one game behind Old Dominion and will need a win over the Blazers and a loss by the Monarchs to finish tied for first place in the standings.

The Hilltoppers have been solid defensively, giving up 70.3 points per game. They gave up 61 points per game in their last two games and need to keep it up if they want to beat the Blazers on Saturday.

As someone who minored in Mathematics, I have a lot of faith in numbers, and make my picks based on stats and not emotions. I've been successfully picking winners for quite some time, so stick with me if you want to get paid.
