Odds & Ends

Creighton is a 34 point favorite. Thirty-four points. This is according to Odds Shark.

If you’re thinking about betting on this game I implore you to call 1-800-522-4700 and get help. You’re better than this. I guarantee you’ll find something more productive than betting on a game that has a thirty four point line.


Series History

UMES and Creighton have never played in their history, but Manny Suarez got 5 minutes of game action against the Hawks when he was playing at Fordham. He attempted one shot and missed it.


Verba de Ludis

University of Maryland Eastern Shore is not good at basketball. They’ve been beaten by the Georgetowns, the Tennessee Techs, even the Duquesnes of the world.

According to Kenpom, the Hawks play some zone. From all the footage I’ve seen, they play in man, but those highlights are typically early on in the game when the game is still reachable in 4 or 5 possessions.

Their best player is a 6’8 freshman named Miryne Thomas. He’s shot 25 threes and made 5 of them. He’s actually decent around the basket, shooting 54% from inside of the arc.

Other than that they boast a 6’ sophomore guard named Ahmad Frost who plays 81% of their possessions yet has a tendency to turn the ball over.

The rest of the lineup is a mismash of freshman and seniors, with 7 different players starting a game at some point this season.

Their offense and defense rank in the 300’s in terms of efficiency. If Creighton was looking for an easy opponent after finals week, boy did they find them. Here are some more metrics:

Jordan Scurry is going to have a field day.
