Davidson Wildcats vs Saint Joseph’s Hawks

Where: Hagan Arena, Philadelphia, PA

When: Tuesday, February 18, 6:30 PM. ET.

The Saint Joseph’s Hawks will be trying to snap their seven-game losing streak when they take on the Davidson Wildcats on Tuesday night.

Wildcats Going For Third Consecutive Win

The Wildcats have played well over the last week, winning two of their last three games. They will be going for their third win in a row and fourth win in their last five games when they face the Hawks on Tuesday.

Davidson is in fifth place in the Atlantic 10 standings, five games behind Dayton. With only six games left in the regular season, their chances of catching up with the Flyers aren’t very good which means they will need to win the conference tournament to make the NCAA tournament this season.

The Wildcats have played well offensively, averaging 73.1 points per game. The team is shooting 45 percent shooting from the field and 36 percent from three-point range. They finished with 93 points in their last game and will need to keep playing well offensively if they want to beat the Hawks.

Kellan Grady led the way for the Wildcats with 16 points, four rebounds, and five assists. Jon Axel Gudmundsson finished with 14 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists, while Hyunjung Lee added 14 points and three rebounds for the Wildcats.

Davidson has also played well defensively, giving up 66.7 points per game. They gave up 64 points in their last game and will need a similar effort to give themselves a chance to win this game.

Hawks Looking For First Conference Win

The Hawks have struggled this season, especially in conference play where they have lost all 11 games they have played. They will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Rhode Island with a win over the Wildcats, which will give them their first conference victory of the year.

Saint Joseph’s hasn’t been able to get going offensively, averaging 69 points per game. The team is shooting 38 percent from the field and 30 percent from three-point range. They finished with 55 points in their last game and will need a much better performance if they want to pick up the win.

Lorenzo Edwards led the way for the Hawks with 10 points and two rebounds, while Toliver Freeman added nine points and 13 rebounds for the Hawks, who finished the game with only one player scoring in double figures.

Saint Joseph’s has also struggled defensively, giving up 80.8 points per game. They gave up 73 points in their last game and will need to do a better job on the defensive end if they want to beat the Wildcats.
