Western Carolina (11-15, 6-7 SoCon) at ETSU (16-10, 9-4 SoCon) 7 pm ASN
The Catamounts cross the mountains to Johnson City to meet the Bucs in Freedom Arena. This is a critical game for both teams, as the Bucs need a win to stay in the hunt for the second place seed in the tournament and the Cats are in a battle with UNCG for the sixth place finish and the final seed in the tournament. The Cats are coming off a three game winning streak, and are 1-13 on the road, having won their first road game last week in Lexington against the Keydets, then upsetting the Mocs in Cullowhee. The Bucs are coming off a home loss to Chattanooga, but are 10-2 on the home court this season, and have won three of their last four games. The Bucs scorched the Cats in Cullowhee earlier this season, by a final score of 66-82, which the Cats hope to avenge. With the Cats road game history, I don't think it happens this season, as the Bucs take 10 point win over the Cats.

Another critical game for these two teams, as Wofford is also in a battle for the second seed, and the Spartans need a win to gain ground on the Catamounts (should they lose to ETSU) for that final seed in the tournament. The Spartans travel north up I-85 to Greensboro to meed the Spartans in the Greensboro Coliseum. The Terriers are only 4-11 on the road this season, but are currently riding a 4 game winning streak, while the Spartans 8-4 at home this season, but are riding a 3 game losing streak into Monday night's game. In my opinion, this game is a toss-up, but I'll go with a 1 point win by the Terreirs just because they are used to winning the big games.
That's how we see them, what do you think?
