A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Mavericks are stumbling into the contest with the sixth most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 77 on average. The Fighting Hawks have experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 47.10% from the floor on average, which is the third highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
