The Ospreys opened the season and lost six straight and seven of their first eight games before winning their last four. So they come in hot, I guess. Those four wins included games against Eastern Michigan, Florida A&M, FIU and Trinity Baptist. Not exactly murders row. Let’s see the KenPom matchup:
Yeesh, that would appear to be a bit of a bad matchup for the Ospreys. They’re decent offensively but atrocious on defense and they really don’t force you to turn the ball over. There are going to be some chances to run as they like to play at a bit of a faster pace, but that doesn’t appear to be a very good thing considering their average possession. So far this season, the Ospreys have not held a Division 1 opponent under 80 points.
Also of note, with a win tonight, Missouri would surpass their win total from a year ago, and eclipse their win total of 2015.
