Can Mount St. Mary’s Step Up And Beat New Orleans?

Mount St. Mary’s had one hell of a roller-coaster season. The Mount opened the season 1-11 only to close out the year red-hot and as winners of the NEC. However, the Mountaineers have faltered against better (I use that term loosely) competition, as the program has gone just 2-5 SU in the past seven against teams with a winning record. Mount St. Mary’s meets New Orleans in a play-in game Tuesday to see who will likely get steamrolled by Villanova.

  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Mount St. Mary's last 8 games as an underdog.
  • New Orleans is 3-0 SU and ATS in its last 3 games as favorite.
  • Mount St. Mary's is 15-3 SU in its last 18 games.

Elijah Long has turned his game on at the right time, as the Mount guard is averaging 21.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists in the past four games. Long’s backcourt partner, Junior Robinson, is also streaking with the junior averaging 20.7 points while shooting 44.7 percent in the past three.

How New Orleans got this far is beyond me. The Privateers coughed the ball up constantly and shot an abysmal 32.2 percent from deep. Erik Thomas is a big reason why this team managed to win the Southland Conference, as the senior paced the team in points, rebounds and steals.
