What to Know
The Northridge Matadors and the Cal Poly Mustangs are set to square off in a Big West matchup at 4 p.m. ET Feb. 11 at Premier America Credit Union Arena. Neither of these teams found much success offensively their last time out, scoring well below their season averages.
The contest between the Matadors and the Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners on Thursday was not particularly close, with Northridge falling 73-58.
Meanwhile, Cal Poly was just a bucket short of a win on Thursday and fell 55-54 to the UC Irvine Anteaters.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Northridge is expected to win a tight contest Saturday. Their home court has been no bettor's paradise, though, as they've failed to beat the spread in six of their 11 home games.
Northridge is now 5-19 while Cal Poly sits at 7-18. Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Matadors have only been able to knock down 39.70% percent of their shots, which is the 353rd lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. The Mustangs have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the matchup with the 357th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 60.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
