The Sun Belt Conference Tournament has reached the 2nd round and we will see the UL Monroe Warhawks duke it out with the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Warhawks are off an 89-80 win over Appalachian State, while the Chanticleers are off a 74-67 home loss to Troy. The Chanticleers won both meetings between these teams this year.

Warhawks Take Down Mountaineers

The UL Monroe Warhawks di not really play well down the stretch as they were just 3-4 over their final seven regular season games, but they were able to take down the Appalachian State Mountaineers in the first round of the Sun Belt Tournament. Now they will look to keep it going against a team that beat them twice this year. The Warhawks have been led by their offense all year and it had a good showing against the Mountaineers. They hit 50% of their shots from the field overall, including 42.9% (12/28) of their shots from long range in the 89-80 win. They needed that offensive performance as the defense struggled, allowing the Mountaineers to hit 47.4% of their shots overall, including 40% of their shots from long range. Leading their attack was Travis Munnings (14.5 ppg), who had 21 points and 12 boards. The Warhawks are ranked 142nd by KenPom and they have faced the 206th ranked schedule.

The Warhawks enter this game ranked 48th in the nation in scoring at 78.6 ppg, while also ranking 133rd in shooting (45.3%), 14th in three-point shooting (39.1%) and 7th in free throw shooting (77.8%). On defense, they are 264th in points allowed, giving up 74.9 ppg, while also ranking 291st in defensive FG% (45.5%) and 282nd in three-point defense (36.1%).

Chanticleers are Off Tough Loss To Troy

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers went into their final against Troy at home riding a two-game win streak, but they ended up taking a tough 74-67 loss in the game. CC has been very mediocre overall as they are just 15-15 on the year and that includes a 9-9 mark within the Sun Belt Conference, but we do note that they won both meetings with the Warhawks this year. The Chanticleers shot just 37.7% from the field overall against Troy and they were a miserable two of 17 from long range. That was the killer. Leading their attack was Zac Cuthbertson (18.5 ppg), who had 19 points. The defense did not have a bad showing as they allowed the Trojans to hit just 34.4% of their shots overall, including 29.1% (9/32) of their shots from long range, but it wasn’t enough thanks to their poor effort from long range. The Chanticleers are ranked 152nd by KenPom and they have faced the 175th rated schedule.

The Chanticleers check in at 90th in the nation in scoring, putting up 76.2 ppg, while also ranking 150th in FG% (45.0%), 45th in 3-point shooting (37.7%) and 139th in free throw shooting (71.1%). At the defensive end of the floor, they have been below average as they come in ranked 202nd in points allowed, giving up 72.2 ppg, while also ranking 115th in defensive FG% (42.7%) and 41st in 3-point defense (31.1%).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Beating a team three times in a year is tough and that is why I will be going with the Warhawks in this one. I also like their offense, which had a great game against the Mountaineers and Coastal Carolina is not a great defensive team. The Warhawks have won their last two games in a row, so they have some momentum, while the Chanticleers are off a bad home loss to a Troy team that didn’t even make the Sun Belt Tournament. Take ULM in this one.

Prediction: UL Monroe -1.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I like the Over in this game. These teams met recently and 188 points were scored in that game. ULM just played a game with 169 points being scored and they have one of the best offenses in the league, while the Chanticleers have also been strong on offense. CC is a below averaged defensive team, while the Warhawks are a poor defensive team. It all adds up to a high-scoring game.

Prediction: Over 152
