UTSA Roadrunners vs Illinois State Redbirds 12/21/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The UTSA Roadrunners of the Conference USA will go against the Illinois State Redbirds of the Missouri Valley Conference in NCAAB action in Redbird Arena Normal, IL, on Tuesday, December 21, 2021, at 3:00 PM (EST).

 

UTSA is presently rated 292nd in KenPom, towards the bottom of the C-USA standings. They are not playing as well as they hoped before the season began. The Roadrunners are projected to finish fifth in their seven-team division, but they had hopes of making a run in the conference playoffs.

 

The Roadrunners did not yet reach that level of performance, but it is still early in the season. An upset in this game would send a strong message to San Antonio.

 

UTSA ranks towards the bottom of the offensive rating (302) and offensive efficiency (274) rankings. Their defense improved significantly, but it is still not up to par. They have a defensive rating of 203rd and a defensive efficiency of 291st. They are 349th out of 355 Division 1 teams in true shooting %.

 

The Roadrunners are only good at one thing: rebounding. They rank 65th in terms of rebounds per game and 12th in terms of offensive rebounds. If they want to take this game and have a shot in the conference tournament, they’ll have to rebound a lot more.

 

  • The University of Texas at San Antonio Roadrunners is 13-7 SU in their last 20 matches.
  • UTSA is 2-13 SU in their last 15 matches on the road.
  • The Roadrunners are 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches in the Missouri Valley Conference.

UTSA Roadrunners vs Illinois State Redbirds Predictions 12/21/2021

 

Illinois State started the season stronger than predicted. In the Missouri Valley Conference, they were expected to finish last. They are currently rated 221st in KenPom and 5th in the league. The majority of their victories came against teams rated lower than them.

 

However, they do have an overtime victory against Missouri State, which is placed 64th. After this battle, they play Wisconsin, which will be their most difficult game to date. With a victory in this game, they’ll have some momentum heading into Madison.

 

On offense, the Redbirds play quickly and shoot well. They rank 55th in offensive efficiency, 58th in true shooting percentage, and 169th in pace. Their defense, which is rated 298th in defensive rating, might use some work.

 

They don’t have several problems in their game, but they could improve their defense. The majority of these stats were acquired against teams that were rated lower than Illinois State, and their true test will come against Wisconsin. Their attack will have to carry them through this match, and it may be enough to prevail.

 

  • The total went OVER in 7 of Illinois State’s last 10 matches.
  • The University of Illinois State Redbirds is 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches at home.
  • The total went OVER in 8 of Illinois State’s last 12 matches played in December.
