Instant Analysis

The Islanders are on familiar turf here, having lost in the play-in game to Texas Southern last season. Essentially the entire rotation is back from that squad, so don’t expect TAMU-CC to be intimidated in this spot.

One veteran will likely not be available, though: Terrion Murdix. The Islanders’ highest-usage player went down with a knee injury in the Southland Tournament, and his absence could be crucial.

For its part, SEMO is rolling. The Redhawks won four games in four days to take the OVC crown, and bowling ball guard Chris Harris will be a handful.

Expect a shootout here. Both teams are very willing to run; SEMO is top 10 nationally in pace. TAMU-CC will likely dominate the interior, while SEMO’s lethal backcourt can get hot in a hurry.
