San Diego Toreros Preview

San Diego fell to 16-14 after losing to LMU in LA, 96-62. The Toreros were blitzed after the break by the Lions, and they’ll look to respond swiftly here against the Tigers. San Diego currently 5th in the WCC with a 6-9 record in league play.

Pacific vs San Diego Prediction

Pacific’s season of turmoil will come to a close Saturday, and San Diego should have no issues doing the honors this Saturday. The Tigers own one of the longest losing streaks in the nation, and it’s likely the Toreros extend it into the 2024-25 campaign. Even if Pacific shows signs of life, they won’t be worth backing at this point. Back San Diego on Senior Night for this WCC matchup.
