The San Francisco Dons and the Fresno State Bulldogs meet in college basketball action from the Save Mart Center on Wednesday night.

The San Francisco Dons will be looking to build on their 88-71 win over subdivision UC-Merced last time out. Khalil Shabazz led the Dons with 21 points on 6 of 11 shooting with a team-high 4 assists and 4 steals while Volodymyr Markovetskyy added 20 points on 8 of 9 shooting with a pair of blocks. Josh Kunen and Tyrell Roberts each had 10 points to finish off the scoring in double figures for San Francisco in the win with both hitting a pair of threes while Kunen had 4 assists. Zane Meeks also chipped in a team-high 9 rebounds in the winning effort for the Dons.

The Fresno State Bulldogs will hope to bounce back from a 61-54 loss to UC-Santa Barbara last time out. Isaiah Hill led the Bulldogs with 11 points as the lone Fresno State player to score in double figures in the loss while Donavan Yap had a team-high 4 assists and Anthony Holland had a team-high 7 rebounds.

San Francisco is 8-23 ATS in their last 31 games following a win and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games following three or more consecutive home games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Fresno State is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 Wednesday games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 home games.

I get the reasoning for backing either side in this game, but I’m sticking with San Francisco here. I know the Bulldogs usually like to win games with solid defense and I’m on board with a team that plays strong defensive ball. But the Dons are just the better team and have been scoring at will regardless of who has been put in front of them so far this season. I think this San Francisco team is one you’ll have to watch entering conference play, but for now I’ll take the Dons and the points here.
