Delaware Blue Hens vs Charleston Cougars 1/7/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Delaware Blue Hens will go against the #23 Charleston Cougars in NCAAB action in TD Arena, SC, on Saturday, January 7, 2023, at 5:00 PM ET.


Despite going just 10-8 last year to tie for fourth place in the CAA, Delaware, the defending champion, enters this game as the favorite.


They showed glimpses of being a championship-caliber club this season, but they did not yet arrive.


The Blue Hens lost two consecutive matches at home to Ohio (95-76) and CAA foe Hofstra after winning five consecutive matches from early December through December 19. They then defeated Rider 60-59 on the road (87-73).


They bounced back to defeat Elon by five last Saturday while limiting the Phoenix to just 34% shooting. Delaware, on the other hand, had trouble scoring, converting only 39% of their shots and 25% (5-of-20) of their 3-point tries.


On 5-of-13 shooting, senior Jameer Nelson Jr. paced the hens with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Christian Ray, a transfer from La Salle, contributed 14 points and six rebounds while shooting 5-of-8.


The Blue Hens score 70.7 points per game on 44.3% of their shots (31.3% from beyond the arc). They are giving up 70.7 points per game on 45.3% shooting and 36.5% from beyond the arc, which ranks 325th.


With a -2.2 rebound margin, they are suffering on the boards, placing 286th overall.


  • The total went OVER in 5 of Delaware’s last 7 matches. 
  • The Delaware Blue Hens are 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches. 
  • The Delaware Blue Hens are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 matches against the College of Charleston.

Delaware Blue Hens vs Charleston Cougars Predictions 1/7/2023


Charleston is now the No. 23 collegiate basketball team and is noted for its excellent golf. A team that was expected to be successful this season thanks to Pat Kelsey now has a chance to get an at-large invite even if they don’t win the CAA Tournament.


The Cougars are currently ranked 47 in the most recent Net Rankings. But given that the CAA is a mid-major conference and typically a one-bid league, they certainly have work to do.


They have a losing record against Quad 1 opponents and won’t play another team like North Carolina until the NCAA Tournament or NIT.


Bolon, who averages just 23 minutes per game but leads an incredibly deep club, leads the way with 12.9 points per game.


They have 9 players that average 16 or more minutes and 5.0 or more points each game, as well as five players who average double-figure points per game.


The Cougars average 81.2 points per game overall, which places them 26th, and shoot 44.8% (33.4% from the 3-point range).


They give up 71 points per game on 44.5% shooting (34.4% from the 3-point range) in defense. With 6.2 per game, they also have the 28th-worst rebounding margin.


  • The College of Charleston Cougars is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 9 of College of Charleston’s last 12 matches. 
  • The College of Charleston Cougars is 10-0 SU in their last 10 matches.

Delaware Blue Hens vs #23 Charleston Cougars. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #23 Charleston Cougars.


While the Hens have two wins on the road (2-3), they were not playing teams like North Carolina because they played the 261st toughest strength of schedule, according to KenPom.


The thing that worries me the most about Delaware is their 257th-ranked three-point defense. They are playing a Charleston club that has a ton of shooters on the roster, both starters, and bench players, thus their road percentage is closer to 39% (38.7%).


It’s going to explode. The Cougars will win to a predicted score of 80-68.
