I’m extremely high on this Santa Clara team this year, but I’m starting to wonder how long it’s going to take to rebound from their bump in the road they’ve hit in the last couple of games. Hawaii’s been in a lot of close calls early on this season and whether that’s good or not, It’s serving them well in spots like this where they’ll need to stay within reach if they’re going to want to have a chance at the upset late. I think Hawaii gives Santa Clara all they can handle here, so I’ll take the points with Hawaii in this one.
