What to Know

The Saint Mary's Gaels will play host again and welcome the North Texas Mean Green to University Credit Union Pavilion, where tip-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET Sunday. The Gaels are the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory.

Everything went Saint Mary's' way against the Vermont Catamounts this past Thursday as they made off with a 79-53 win. Saint Mary's got double-digit scores from five players: guard Logan Johnson (15), guard Alex Ducas (14), guard Luke Barrett (12), center Mitchell Saxen (11), and forward Kyle Bowen (10). Barrett had some trouble finding his footing against the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles last Monday, so this was a step in the right direction.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, North Texas beat the Southern Nazarene Crimson Storm 53-47 last week.

Their wins bumped Saint Mary's to 2-0 and North Texas to 1-0. In Saint Mary's' victory, Alex Ducas had 14 points along with five rebounds and Luke Barrett had 12 points. We'll see if the Mean Green have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
