What to Know
The Hawaii Warriors lost both of their matches to the Santa Barbara Gauchos last season on scores of 50-59 and 74-81, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. The Warriors and Santa Barbara will face off in a Big West battle at 11:59 p.m. ET Saturday at SimpliFI Arena at Stan Sheriff Center. Hawaii is out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.
Hawaii was able to grind out a solid win over the Northridge Matadors on Thursday, winning 72-65.
Meanwhile, after constant struggles on the road, Santa Barbara has finally found some success away from home. They made easy work of Northridge on Tuesday and carried off a 72-45 victory.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Warriors are expected to win a tight contest. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Thursday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
The wins brought Hawaii up to 10-5 and the Gauchos to 8-7. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Hawaii is eighth worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.3 on average. Santa Barbara has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 47th most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 14.5 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
