The Line: Hawaii Warrior -7.5 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Montana Grizzlies shoot for theit second win at the Hawaii Warriors in late night college basketball action.
A few things that have been a constant for Montana has been plenty of points coming from the offense and even more by opponents which has left the team looking at a 1-3 start. The Grizzlies once again lit up the scoreboard in an 83-79 loss at Washington but getting stops at the defensive end didn't happen. The Grizzlies led by six at the half but their defense failed in the final 20 minutes with the Huskies connecting at 51% while the visitors burned the cotton at nearly 60%. Montana was crushed on the boards 32-14 and at the line 24-6 which over came better shooting. Jordan Gregory paced the Montana offense with 27 points followed by Keron DeShields with 20 while Kareem Jamar added 16 points and seven helpers.

Hawaii has had zero problem scoring the basketball with only one game failing to reach at least 80 points. Now if the Warriors could find a defense that could get stops on a consistent basis they would be a real handful. That was the case in a 91-58 rout of visiting New Orleans with the Privateers held to a mere 27.6% accuracy while UH tickled the nets at 44.5%. The home team dominated the backboards 52-27 including 21 offensive rebounds which were turned in to eleven more looks at the basket. Brandon Spearman led four DD scorers with 16 points and five yanks while Christian Standhardinger tossing in 13 points and grabbed 14 rebounds with Keith Shamburger and Quincy Smith combining for 21 points and ten assists.
Hawaii can be tough at home and Montana has to score because their defense won't get the job done. If I could find an over I might consider that but instead I'll try the points...
