The Rattlers have been ranked 300 or below on KenPom for the majority of the site’s existence (dating back to 2002), so they haven’t exactly ever been an illustrious program. The Blue Demons have never played the Rattlers, but they are 2-0 against the MEAC this year with wins over Morgan State and Bethune Cookman.
DePaul will likely use this game as a final tune-up before they travel to Evanston for their showdown with the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday. Look for Big East Honor Roll member Eli Cain to look to continue his strong play. Cain had a season-high 26 points against Cleveland State to earn his spot on this week’s Honor Roll.
Florida A&M’s offense is very bad. Just one player averages more than 10 points per game, senior guard Justin Ravenel (14.4). If DePaul can stop him, they will likely win.
They will likely win regardless.
