An extremely interesting week of games kicks off with a single matchup tonight pitting struggling Hampton against a Radford team that should be sky-high after Saturday's comeback victory over George Mason.
Hampton (1-4) at Radford (2-2), 7 p.m.
Injury-plagued Hampton has dropped four straight and failed to score more than 43 points in either of its last two games, both at home. The Highlanders got a much-needed second half offensive surge from Da'Naria Erwin Spencer and Brooke McElroy to chase down George Mason. We're tempted to say the first team to 50 points wins, but that would be kind of flip. Let's just say we're not expecting a high-scoring game. Despite their recent form, we'll still lean towards the Lady Pirates. But the Highlanders are catching Hampton at a good time and should have loads of confidence after Saturday's win. Hampton 55, Radford 51
