UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns (22-4) vs. Texas-Arlington Mavericks (16-11)

When and Where: Saturday, February 17, Lafayette, LA., 8.00 PM EST

One very interesting showdown inside the Sun Belt Conference will take place at Cajundome between the team that holds the best win/loss record among unranked squads at the moment, UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, and their visitors from Arlington, the Mavericks. The hosts are coming off from a 73-63 home win over the Texas State Bobcats while the Mavericks lost their most recent duel that took place in Monroe against the Warhawks, 84-71.

The Mavericks end the three-game winning streak

The UT Arlington Mavericks started the two-game road trip at Louisiana by ending their second-longest winning streak of the season that lasted for three matches. They took down Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, and Texas State but the surging Warhawks proved to be too big of a bite for them. Generally, the squad averages 77.3 points per game on offense (85th in the NCAA) but their weak side comes on the defense as they limit their opponents to 72.7 total points per game (184th in the country).

Senior forward Kevin Hervey tops the team in scoring by averaging mesmerizing 20.8 points along with team-high 8.6 rebounds per game. Another senior, guard Erick Neal follows with 15.2 points and team-high 7.0 assists per contest. Other two guys that average double-digit scoring figures are center Johnny Hamilton with 10.8 and Kaelon Wilson with 11.2 points per duel. It’s interesting to say that top five scorers in Mavericks’ squad are seniors making their next off-season very interesting one. In a loss by the Warhawks, Neal led the team with game-high 35 points while Hervey added solid 12.

UL Lafayette continues to top the Sun Belt

The Ragin’ Cajuns are 12-1 inside the conference play at the moment and the appearance in top-25 rankings looked very close, but a hiccup on the road against Georgia State deprived the team of this success. Still, they remain the top contenders for wrapping up the conference championship and appearing at the NCAA Tournament for the first time in four years. The squad averages 84.2 points per game on offense (16th in the NCAA) but their weak side comes on the defense as they limit their opponents to 70.3 total points per game (127th in the country).

Four guys are averaging double scoring figures for the Cajuns this year. Senior guard Frank Bartley tops the pack with 17.0 points, 3.4 boards, and 2.0 assists while junior forward Jakeenan Gant ranks second in scoring with 14.8 points per matchup. New Orleans native, senior forward Bryce Washington is the defensive leader of the team with 10.9 points and 10.7 boards per contest while another senior, guard Johnathan Stove adds 11.0 points and 2.0 assists on average. In a win over the Bobcats, Washington led the team with 19 points while Bartley added 18.

Trends:

Texas-Arlington:

  • 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games.
  • 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games overall.
  • 7-1 O/U in their last eight road games.

UL Lafayette:

  • 9-1 ATS in their last 10 home games.
  • 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
  • 4-1 O/U in their last five games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.

The ATS line favors the Ragin’ Cajuns at 10.0 which might look a bit too high at the first glance but the home team should take it comfortably. When it comes to Totals, the situation gets a bit trickier but according to the most of both teams’ active trends, Over should present the right direction.

The Pick: UL Lafayette / Over
