Things to know
- From the very first game of the season, the Falcons have been an elite team. The Falcons played an easier nonconference schedule than the Bobcats, but they were very impressive in their 12-game slate. The Falcons went 11-1, with their only loss coming against Indiana. The Falcons didn't look quite as impressive in their first game of conference play when they lost at Ball State, but they picked up right where they left off and have won nine straight games.
- The Falcons score more points per game than any team in the MAC, and are a respectable fourth in points allowed per game. The Falcons also lead the MAC in 3-point efficiency, making 35.5% of their 3-pointers. The Falcons also lead the conference in turnover margin by a staggering amount. The Falcons only turn the ball over 12.7 times a game, but still manage to turn their opponents over a league best 21.4 times a game.
- Although the Falcons don't have a signature scorer, they do have five players that average at least 10 points per game.
Keys to the game:
The Bobcats can’t give the best offense in the MAC extra possessions. The Bobcats will have to protect the ball, and try to keep one of the best rebounding teams in the MAC off the glass.
