PICK: I’m going to try UC Santa Barbara, but probably staying away. I could see this matchup going either way. The Gauchos didn’t play particularly well versus Northern Arizona in their last outing, posting 31.9 percent shooting from the floor and 17.6 (3-of-17) from 3-point range. UC Santa Barbara is going to need to improve those numbers, and the good news is that Hampton should be a relatively easier matchup. Should be a competitive game, though.
