What to Know
After two games on the road, Washington is heading back home. They will take on the UC San Diego Tritons at 10:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Given that the pair suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this match.
Washington pushed their score all the way to 97 on Sunday, but even that wasn't enough to win. They fell just short of the Aztecs by a score of 100-97.
The loss doesn't tell the whole story though, as several players had good games. One of the most active was Paul Mulcahy, who dropped a double-double on 11 points and 13 assists. Sahvir Wheeler was another key contributor, scoring 19 points along with 6 assists and 4 steals.
Meanwhile, the Tritons came up short against the Redhawks on Sunday and fell 79-67. UC San Diego has not had much luck with Seattle recently, as the team's come up short the last two times they've met.

Not only did UC San Diego and Washington lose their last games, but neither team managed to cover the spread. Looking forward, Washington is the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 15 points. Bettors picking them against the spread have some confidence (to put it mildly), as the team is sitting on a three-game streak of failing to cover when expected to win.
