This Big West matchup features the UC Davis Aggies and the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos.
The Gauchos won the meeting with the Aggies just last month by a score of 69-58.
UC Davis Aggies
UC Davis enters this game having won two in a row and looking to turn their season around. We have seen stranger things than a team with a losing record winning their conference an earning a bid to the Big Dance. A win over UC Santa Barbara would put the Aggies back to .500 in the conference and give them a ton of momentum.
The Aggies have to have one of the worst offense in the country this year. Despite that being said, they have player who is literally the life of the team as he leads the team in almost every category. TJ Shorts II is this player and leads the Aggies in points per game (14.8), rebounds per game (5), assists per game (4.2), and steals per game (1.2). If Shorts does not have a huge game, the Aggies will not win.
The Aggies are allowing 69.1 points per game this year, which is decent at best. Their only chance to win this game is to force the Gauchos to shoot under 45% from the field. They also need to try and hold them to the low 60’s so their offense can keep up.
UC Santa Barbara Gauchos
The Gauchos are sitting pretty in second place in the Big West. They have a conference record of 6-2 and are still looking to chase down UC Irvine.
The Gauchos have an offense that is scoring 74.7 points per game. Other than that look for the Gauchos to win the rebounding battle since they are a top 35 team in this category.
The Gauchos are the 25th best team when it comes to points allowed per game. This number comes in at 64.3. Another area they excel at is defending the three point line. Opponents are shooting 27.7% from deep range, which ranks 5th in the country. If they can slow down TJ Shorts II, it will be much easier for them to find a win.
