What to Know
The California Riverside Highlanders and the Hawaii Warriors are set to clash at 11:30 p.m. ET March 10 at Dollar Loan Center in the second round of the Big West Conference Tourney. Hawaii should still be riding high after a big victory, while the Highlanders will be looking to right the ship.
California Riverside was just a bucket short of a win on Saturday and fell 73-72 to the Long Beach State Beach.
Meanwhile, everything went the Warriors’ way against the Northridge Matadors on Saturday as they made off with an 84-62 win.
Barring any buzzer beaters, California Riverside is expected to win a tight contest on Thursday. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: California Riverside is 25th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.7 on average. Hawaiis have had an even harder time: they are stumbling into the contest with the 22nd fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.6 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
