The Massachusetts Minutemen are 4-0 against the UMass Lowell River Hawks since November of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Wednesday. The Minutemen will look to defend their home court against UMass Lowell at 7 p.m. ET. The River Hawks should still be riding high after a win, while UMass will be looking to regain their footing.

The point spread favored UMass on Sunday, but luck did not. It was close but no cigar for UMass as they fell 89-86 to the Ball State Cardinals. Massachusetts’ defeat came about despite a quality game from guard T.J. Weeks Jr., who had 19 points in addition to eight boards.

Meanwhile, UMass Lowell strolled past the George Washington Colonials with points to spare last Friday, taking the contest 67-56.

This next game looks promising for the Minutemen, who are favored by a full 10 points. They may be expected to win, but bettors beware: they are only 1-3 against the spread when favored.

UMass is now 3-3 while the River Hawks sit at 4-1. UMass Lowell is 2-1 after wins this year, and UMass is 2-0 after losses.
