San Jose State Looks to Bounce Back
San Jose State comes into this game with a 2-1 record overall but they are coming off a loss in the last game.

Alvaro Cardenas Torre had 14 points, four rebounds, and two assists. San Jose State is averaging 77 points while their defense is giving up 64 points per game. In this game San Jose State is going to need the offense to be better here.
What a weird start for Abilene Christian
Abilene Christian scored 64 points in the first game against Oklahoma State and that was enough for the five point victory. The last two games though, the defense wasn’t good and that led to two straight defeats. Two games ago against NC State they lost 84-64 and in the last game against Prairie View A&M they lost 79-74. Abilene Christian had two different players that scored at least 14 points. Ali Abdou Dibba put up 16 points and two rebounds. In this game the defense is going to need to step up in a big way.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Abilene Christian defense has been a big issue the last couple of games and it’s going to be an issue again here. San Jose State on the season is averaging 77 points and they are going to need to have the offense to be good again here. Alvaro Cardenas Torre had a big game in the last game and he’s going to have a big game again here. Back San Jose State against the spread.
