What to Know

After a three-game homestand, the UC San Diego Tritons will be on the road. UC San Diego and the Long Beach State Beach will face off in a Big West battle at 10 p.m. ET on Thursday at The Walter Pyramid. The Tritons will be seeking to avenge the 87-69 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played January 20th.

UC San Diego received a tough blow last week as they fell 65-53 to the Hawaii Warriors.

Meanwhile, the matchup between Long Beach State and the Santa Barbara Gauchos on Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Long Beach State falling 84-71 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one.

UC San Diego is expected to lose this next one by 8. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on UC San Diego's opponents whenever they hit the road.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
