Abilene Christian has not played very well recently and has lost five of their last six games that were actually played. Cal Baptist has lost three of their last four games, but all three losses came against teams at the top of the conference. Abilene Christian won the lone meeting between these teams in the regular season, but I like Cal Baptist in this game. The Lancers have played better on the defensive end of the court and I think that will be the difference.
