The CSU Northridge Matadors have the offense to hang around in games, but that defense has been awful to say the least and it gets even worse on the road where they're allowing 88.3 points and 41 percent shooting from deep. The San Diego Toreros are outscoring teams by 11.2 points at home this season and have more than stood their ground with a tough schedule. The CSU Northridge Matadors have been getting blasted defensively no matter who they play and it makes them tough to back. I hate massive numbers, but I have to lay it here.
