The UC-Riverside Highlanders and the Idaho Vandals meet in college basketball action from the Idaho Central Credit Union Arena on Sunday.

The UC-Riverside Highlanders will look to bounce back from a 65-60 loss to Cal Baptist last time out. Zyon Pullin leads the Highlanders in scoring with 18.5 PPG along with 4.5 RPG and 3.6 APG to also lead UC-Riverside in assists while Flynn Cameron has 12 PPG with a team-high 6.5 RPG to cap off the pair of double-digit scorers for UC-Riverside up to this point in the season. As a team, UC-Riverside is averaging 72.8 PPG on 46.1% shooting from the field, 33.7% from three and 69.6% from the foul line this season.

The Idaho Vandals will try to add to their current three game win streak after a 76-66 win over New Hampshire last time out. Isaac Jones leads Idaho in scoring and rebounding with 19.6 PPG and 7.5 RPG while Divant’e Moffitt has 16.9 PPG with a team-high 5.4 APG to lead Idaho in assists this season. Terren Frank has 10 PPG and 6 RPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Idaho up to this point in the season. As a team, Idaho is averaging 76.2 PPG on 50.5% shooting from the field, 36.9% from three and 73.4% from the foul line this season.

UC-Riverside is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following an ATS loss while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games following a loss. Idaho is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 11-4 in their last 15 home games.

I get the case to be made on either side here, as Idaho is a home dog here and home dogs are always worth consideration, especially when they’ve won three straight. UC-Riverside has been a cover machine, but Idaho is a top-10 team shooting the rock and these are two teams that are fairly even on both sides of the floor. Feels like this like should be tighter. Give me the points with Idaho.
