Meanwhile, VMI was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Thursday as they fell 97-91 to the Mercer Bears.

The Citadel’s victory brought them up to 7-7 while the Keydets’ defeat pulled them down to 9-8. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The Bulldogs are stumbling into the matchup with the 36th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 11.2 on average. VMI has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 349th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 9.9 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
