Big West college basketball action features the Long Beach State 49ers hosting the CS Northridge Matadors.
The CS Northridge Matadors have struggled to score the basketball and the wins have been hard to come by. CS Northridge struggled again to score in their conference opener in a 65-46 loss to the visiting Hawaii Warriors as a 7.5 point home dog. Hawaii took a 14 point lead in to the half and never looked back behind a 472%-27.5% shooting edge.

CS Northridge received eleven points and seven boards from Lyrik Shreiner on 4-7 accuracy while Terell Gomez and Michael Warren combined for 19 points and 14 rebounds.
The Long Beach State 49ers are probably a step back from where they usually are because the defensive end of the floor has been inconsistent.
