I has been a struggle for the Northern Colorado Bears at 2-6 with both wins coming against sub division teams. The Bears have generally been able to score but stopping opponents has been difficult at best. The Bears are coming off of a 91-58 victory versus York College PA that was a 34 point game at the half. UNC sank shots at nearly 47% and had a +23 on the backboards while holding the Lions to just 35.5%. Anthony Johnson led the Bears offense with 23 points and rebounds with Miles Seward and Jordan Wilson scoring 16 points apiece. Jordan Davis added 13 points while eight players scored overall.
The over is 8-0 in Colorado State’s last 8 overall and is 8-0 in their last 8 non-conference games while the under is 6-2 in CSU last 8 vs. Big Sky. The under is 8-2 in the Bears last 10 vs. Mountain West and the over is 7-2 in their last 9 non-conference games while the over is 17-5-1 in their last 23 home games. Trust me when I say neither team is creaming to be bet on but I’m taking the points because they are there…
