Southern Utah Thunderbirds
The Southern Utah Thunderbirds have had a very disappointing season but was kind of expected under first year head coach Todd Simon. His specialty is on the offensive side of the ball but he hasn’t been able to get his recruiting class yet so hasn’t been able to implement that type of style yet.

The Thunderbirds downfall is on the defensive side of the ball. They give up 85.2 points well opponents shoot 48.9 percent from the field.
For Southern Utah to win this game they need to play better on the defensive side of the ball. Montana State is good on the offensive side of the ball so they need to try and slow them down. If they can keep this game in the 70’s they have a chance to win this game.
Montana State Bobcats
The Montana State Bobcats have had a very up and down season filled with long winning streaks, and losing streaks. They come into this game with a record of 16-15 record.
The Bobcats have won five of the last six games. In their last game however they lost to Weber State by a final score of 76-67. It was an odd off day on the offensive side of the ball and it ultimately cost them the game.
The Bobcats are good on the offensive side of the ball, but as good as they are on that side they are just as bad on the defensive side of the ball.
They average 78.3 points per game well shooting 43.3 percent from the field. On the defensive side of the ball the Bobcats give up 78.4 points per game and opponents shoot 45.2 percent from the field. For the Bobcats to win this game they need to play solid on the defensive side of the ball.
