Roster: https://coppinstatesports.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster?path=mbball
Stats: https://coppinstatesports.com/sports/mens-basketball/stats/2022?path=mbball

Coppin St. is led by Sam Sessoms (24.0 ppg - 4th in the nation), Nendah Tarke (12.9 ppg & 6.1 reb). They rarely leave the floor averaging 37.7 and 35.9 minutes respectively. Justin Wilson (9.4 ppg) has contributed of late. In all 10 Eagles have started at least 1 game. Along with Sessoms and Tarke, Kam’Ron Blue (6.1 ppg) is the only other Eagle to start every game.

Coppin St. averages 77.9 points per game while giving up 86.9 (DEAD last D1). They have given up more than 80 points 11 times this season. I think it is fair to say they are not renowned for their defense. The Eagles are shooting 45.9% from the floor and 35.4% from 3. Opponents are shooting 47.1% from the field and 34.1% from 3. They shoot 72.4% from the free throw line. The Eagles are out rebounding by their opponents by an astounding 10.3 boards per game. They average 15.1 turnovers per game.

The game is on ESPN+.

My prediction: At the beginning of the year I had this down as an easy win but we’ve shown we allow guys to just flat out go off on us. Sessoms can be one of those guys. He scores 55 but Mason squeezes by 75-74. I won’t be shocked if we lose this one though. They can light it up if they get hot.

We finish the OOC portion of our season 8-5. The only way we dance is to win the A10 tourney.

Discuss.

Is Mason really 8-14 against Coppin State all time?

Coppin beat JMU today. JMU was a 16 point favorite playing at Coppin St.
No offense to Coppin St, but why is JMU playing a true road game at Coppin? They need to save $80K (which I think is the going rate for a buy-game) that bad??

I was surprised as well. But maybe it goes back to before either of us were Division I. There was a time both programs played in the NAIA (pre-1978), so maybe it harkens back to those times.

I think I may actually have one of the mimeographed programs from one of those games.

I’m starting to wonder if this game will be cancelled due to bad weather.
Yea - I've missed a lot of home games this year and was excited to go to this one and rock some ugly sweaters, but not sure we are going to take the family out on what are sure to be iced over roads with single digit temps
 
Start Ojiako and let's see what happens.
Speaking of this question... from ByGeorge today.
