What you should know

The Utah Valley Wolverines lost both games to the Abilene Christian Wildcats last season, 76-80 and 74-82, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. The Wolverines and Abilene Christian will face off in a WAC bout on Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. ET at the UCCU Events Center. Both teams lost in their last game, so they have enough motivation to get the “W”.

Utah Valley entered the contest against the Seattle Redhawks last Saturday with no home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. Utah Valley was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they lost 85-80 to Seattle.

Meanwhile, Abilene Christian came up short against the Tarleton State Texans last Saturday, losing 72-63.

The Wolverines are the favorites in this game, with an expected 9-point lead to win. Those burned by picking them against the spread last Saturday should consider that the team has yet to lose consecutive games against the spread this season.

The losses put Utah Valley at 14-5 and the Wildcats at 9-9. A few defensive stats to remember before you tip: Utah Valley keeps their opponents at a 39.30% field goal percentage, which ranks them 22nd in college basketball.
