The Cal Poly Mustangs make the long trek to the Stan Steriff Center to match up with the Hawaii Warriors.


The Cal Poly Mustangs were not a very good team a season ago but they got hot at playoff time and won the Big West. The Mustangs look much improved in 2014-15 at 7-5 and have won four of five heading in to conference action. The Mustangs are coming off a 71-57 victory at IPFW in which they took a 12 point lead at the break and made it hold up through the final buzzer. Each team connected in the 45% range with Cal Poly holding a 9-3 edge in threes to pick up the win. Michael Bolden paced the Mustangs with a game high 20 points on 7-11 shooting with David Nwaba adding 13 points and seven boards. Ridge Shipley and Brian Bennett combined for 21 points which was a big offensive game for a team that seldom breaks 70 points.

USA TODAY Sports


The Hawaii Warriors first season in the Big West is shaping up to be a good one with a 12-4 record behind one of the top offenses in the game at 74 points. The Warriors have won three in a row and five of six after a 76-68 win over visiting Prairie View A&M. The Panthers hung tough with 43.6% shooting including a 10-22 mark on three pointers but the Warriors 52.6% from the floor prevailed with a balanced attack that produced five double digit scorers. Mike Thomas gave UH 14 points on 4-6 from the field with Isaac Fleming next in line with eleven points. Garrett Nevels, Quincy Smith and Negus Webster-Chan each scored ten points with Webster-Chan posting six rebounds. Overall the entire nine man rotation of the Warriors found the scoring column.


The Mustangs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600 and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win. Cal Poly are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games. The Warriors are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. Hawaii are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games. I have to think Hawaii has the edge at home but Cal Poly has something going on and I like it...
