What to Know
The San Francisco Dons will take on the UNLV Rebels at 10 p.m. ET Saturday at War Memorial Gymnasium. San Francisco is out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
It was a close one, but last week the Dons sidestepped the UAB Blazers for a 63-61 win. Having forecasted a close victory for San Francisco, the oddsmakers were right on the money. They got double-digit scores from four players: forward Yauhen Massalski (23), guard Khalil Shabazz (11), guard Gabe Stefanini (11), and guard Julian Rishwain (10).
Meanwhile, UNLV ended up a good deal behind the SMU Mustangs when they played on Wednesday, losing 83-64. The top scorers for UNLV were forward Royce Hamm Jr. (13 points), guard Bryce Hamilton (12 points), and guard Justin Webster (12 points).
This next game looks promising for San Francisco, who are favored by a full 11.5 points. Now might not be the best time to take the Dons against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past four consecutive games.
San Francisco’s victory brought them up to 8-0 while the Rebels’ loss pulled them down to 4-4. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: San Francisco enters the matchup with a 49.10% field goal percentage, good for 27th best in college basketball. On the other end of the spectrum, UNLV has only been able to knock down 40.20% percent of their shots, which is the 39th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. We’ll see if San Francisco’s 8.90% advantage translates to a win.
