The San Diego Toreros will travel up the coast and take on the Saint Mary’s Gaels Thursday night.
St. Mary’s will be favored to win at home here.
San Diego Toreros
San Diego quietly enjoyed a nice non-conference stretch, picking up wins over Nevada and UC Riverside. The Toreros have been competitive in West Coast play, and they nearly defeated BYU and Santa Clara on the road.
Marcelllus Earlington left St. John’s for more playing time and it’s paid off for him so far. The 6’6 swingman tied his season-high last time out with 23 points in the loss to Santa Clara. Earlington is leading the team in socring (13.8), while grabbing 6.7 rpg.
An injury to second-leading scorer Jase Townsend has led to USD leaning more on senior guard Joey Calcaterra. The 6’3 guard has been around since the Toreros jump to the Big West, and he’s scoring 9.3 ppg this season.
Terrell Brown has also become more of a focal point with Townsend still out for the next few weeks. The former Pittsburgh Panther has scored in double figures in four of his last five games, and he posted back-to-back double-doubles on the road against Pepperdine and Portland.
Brown leads the Toreros in rebounding at 7.1 per game.
A&M transfer Yavuz Guktekin has responded well to a spike in playing time, scoring 11 points and grabbing 12 boards in win over LMU.
St. Mary’s Gaels
St. Mary’s has been on a tear since losing to BYU at the start of the calendar year. The Gaels have won seven of their last eight, and they now sit comfortably second in the West Coast Conference. St. Mary’s did slip up last time out, losing to Santa Clara on the road, 77-72.
Matthias Tias leads an experienced Gaels squad. The 6’10 senior mans the middle, and he scored a season-high 27 points in the win over Missouri State. If he can avoid foul trouble he should give Santa Clara all they can handle.
Tass leads the Gaels in scoring (13.2) and rebounding (6.4).
Alex Ducas had a career performance against LMU, scoring a season-high 25 points and hitting five threes. Ducas is second on the team in coring at 11.1 ppg.
Tommy Kuhse’s sixth season in the Bay area has been terrific. He sets the tempo on both sides of the ball, and scores 9.9 ppg, while leading the team in assists (3.3).
Logan Johnson is a defensive stud who averages nearly two steals per game, but he finally had an offensive outburst, scoring 26 points to help the Gaels take down Yale a few weeks ago.
Senior big Kyle Bowen joins Tias up front, and he grabs 6.1 rpg.
CBB Betting Trends:
- USD is 7-8 ATS in their last 15 games.
- BYU is 8-2 their last 10 games following a ATS loss.
- The under is 8-5 in Cougars last 13 games.
Free San Diego Toreros vs. St. Mary’s Gaels NCAAB Prediction: USD/STM to go Over
The Gaels need to keep things going here with a top 10 tournament seed within reach.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Over 126.5
The low total will get it’s time to shine Thursday night. St. Mary’s has quietly been better on the offensive end than defensive over past few weeks, and I believe they can handle the heavy lifting here. San Diego has only scored less than 64 points once in conference play, with that game being against annual power Gonzaga.
Take the over for this one.
