The Tritons came up short against the California Riverside Highlanders this past Thursday, falling 59-51.
Meanwhile, it looks like UC Davis must have gotten on Santa’s naughty list since the squad didn’t end up with the win they were expected to receive three weeks ago. They were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they fell 65-60 to the Portland Pilots. Guard Elijah Pepper had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 27 minutes but putting up just four points on 2-for-12 shooting.
California-San Diego is expected to lose this next one by 5. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 2-4 ATS when expected to lose.
California-San Diego is now 8-6 while the Aggies sit at 6-4. The Tritons are 3-2 after losses this season, UC Davis 1-2.
