The San Diego State Aztecs and the College of Charleston Cougars face off on Thursday in Fullerton in college basketball action.
The San Diego State Aztecs are off to a 2-1 start to the season with their one loss coming to Arizona who is ranked in the top 5. SDSU should be competitive once again this season and with Bill Fisher they have a veteran Head Coach who is a proven winner. J.J. O’Brien is averaging 14.7 points and 5.7 rebounds to lead the Aztecs. Xavier Thames is averaging 13 points, Winston Shepard is averaging 10.7 points, and Josh Davis is averaging 9.3 points and 8.3 rebounds. San Diego State is averaging 76.7 points and they are shooting 45.9 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 50.3 points and their opponents are shooting 32.7 percent. San Diego State’s schedule is soft for the most part though they do have a matchup with Kansas in early January.

The College of Charleston Cougars are battle tested and while they haven’t had much success they do have a win over Charlotte under their belt. Bobby Cremins team is coming off of a win against Furman but more often they have been on the wrong side of a blowout. Canyon Berry is averaging 15.4 points, Joe Chealey is averaging 10.4 points, Willis Hall is averaging 10 points and 7.0, and Adjehi Baru is averaging 9.2 points and 8.0 rebounds. COC are averaging 66.4 points and they are shooting 44.5 percent while defensively they are allowing 66.8 points and their opponents shoot 43.1 percent. The Cougars can only hope their experience helps them out in this spot.
San Diego State is 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games, 0-6-1 against the spread following a win, and 0-3-1 against the spread following a win by 20 or more points. College of Charleston is 3-7-1 against the spread in their last 11 neutral site games, 4-14 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, and 1-5 against the spread in their last six games.
San Diego State is a big favorite here and they should be as I look for the Aztecs to get the cover.
