(stats as of Sunday morning)

Omaha has yet to defeat a Division I opponent this season and has allowed at least 75 points in eight of their last nine games in their current losing streak.

St. Thomas has found instant success at the Division I level thanks to an offense that is 30th in the country in points scored on a per-possession basis, due in large part to a 38.3 percent 3-point percentage against Division I competition.

The Nebraska Omaha defense is 355th in the country in points allowed on a per-possession basis, allowing Division I opponents to make 39.7 percent of their 3-pointers, which is 344th nationally.

Omaha is 330th in the country in rebound rate and 310th in turnovers on a per-possession basis. St. Thomas is eighth in the country in taking care of the ball. The Tommies will win their first Division I conference game on Monday.

Pick: St. Thomas -2.5
