UC San Diego @ Cal Poly
Current Records: UC San Diego 13-15; Cal Poly 6-20
What to Know
Get ready for a Big West battle as the UC San Diego Tritons and the Cal Poly Mustangs will face off at 10 p.m. ET this past Saturday at Robert A. Mott Gym. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
It was a close one, but this past Thursday UC San Diego sidestepped the Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners for a 72-70 victory.
Meanwhile, Cal Poly had enough points to win and then some against the UC Irvine Anteaters this past Thursday, taking their matchup 65-54.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Tritons are expected to win a tight contest. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
The wins brought UC San Diego up to 13-15 and Cal Poly to 6-20. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: UC San Diego has allowed their opponents to shoot 46% from the floor on average, which is the 34th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Mustangs have experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 40.40% percent of their shots, which is the 14th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
