Southeast Missouri returns home from their west coast swing to host NAIA Hannibal-LaGrange. A look at the matchup by the numbers
70.6%While the guard play wasn’t there out west, Nino Johnson had an efficient pair of games, hitting more than 70% of his shots from the field. There weren’t a lot of shots for the Redhawks forward, though, as he averaged just 13.5 points over the two contests.
14.7%The biggest proof the Redhawks missed Josh Langford and Jarekious Bradley? The Redhawks shot just 14.7% from three-point range in their two games at the LMU classic. The Redhawks also played quite slower — they averaged the most possessions in the OVC per game last year.
59.4%Southeast Missouri struggled with free-throws last year. They’re not off to the best of starts this year, either. SEMO hit fewer than 60% from the line in their two games on the road. Perhaps their home court will be friendlier?
96-55These teams last met in 2012, with the Redhawks having no problems getting past the Trojans. SEMO has never lost to teams from the American Midwest Conference.
