Current Records: Sacramento State 0-1; UC San Diego 0-1
What to Know
The UC San Diego Tritons have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Sacramento State Hornets at 10 p.m. ET Nov. 12 at LionTree Arena. UC San Diego is the slight favorite, but fans of both teams should be in for an exciting matchup likely to go down to the wire.
The Tritons received a tough blow on Monday as they fell 85-71 to the Seattle Redhawks.
Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough contest for Sacramento State on Monday, and boy were they were right. They have to be aching after a bruising 76-50 loss to the UCLA Bruins. Cameron Wilbon had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with ten points on 5-for-13 shooting in his 29 minutes on the court.
The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 0-1. Two last-season numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: UC San Diego is 358th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 12.1 on average. But Sacramento State is stumbling into the game with the second most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 11.1 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
