What you should know

The Valparaiso Beacons and Northern Iowa Panthers will face off in a Missouri Valley matchup on January 25 at 8:00 p.m. ET at the McLeod Center. The Beacons will be looking to avenge the 69-67 loss they suffered in these two teams’ last game on Jan. 4.

Valpo won his match against the Illinois State Redbirds last Saturday with a convincing 71-51 score. Valpo received double-digit scores from four players: guard Quinton Green (26), guard Kobe King (15), forward Ben Krikke (10), and guard Nick Edwards (10).

Meanwhile, Northern Iowa didn’t have much breathing room in their game against the Illinois-Chicago Flames last Saturday, but they still walked away with a 78-72 win. Northern Iowa can credit much of its success to guard Michael Duax, who dropped a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds.

Valpo is expected to lose this next one by 9.5. Those betting on them against the spread should not have high expectations of them as the team is 4-9 ATS when expected to lose.

Their wins put the Beacons at 9-12 and the Panthers at 11-9. Quinton Green will be someone to watch after shooting 6-of-8 from beyond the arc last Saturday and finishing with 26 points. Let’s see if he can build on that strong display or if Northern Iowa’s defense can corner him.
