Boise State Falls To Butler

The Boise State Broncos come into this game looking to bounce back from a 70-56 loss to Butler in their last matchup. Chibuzo Agbo leads the Broncos in scoring with 13.5 PPG along with 5.7 RPG while Tyson Degenhart has 12.8 PPG with 4.8 RPG this season. O’Mar Stanley has 10.3 PPG with 4 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for the Broncos this season while Max Rice has 8.7 PPG and Cam Martin has 8.5 PPG with team-highs of 6.2 RPG and 2.5 APG to lead Boise State in rebounding and assists. As a team, Boise State is averaging 69.3 PPG on 41.2% shooting from the field, 26.4% from three, and 73.6% from the foul line this season.

Saint Mary’s Falls To Utah

The Saint Mary’s Gaels come into this one on the heels of a 78-71 loss to Utah last time out. The Gaels suffered four defeats so far, including the ones to San Diego State and Xavier. Aidan Mahaney leads the Gaels in scoring and assists with 15 PPG with 3.3 APG as the only double-digit scorer for the Gaels up to this point in the year. Alex Ducas has 9.9 PPG with 3.9 RPG and Mitchell Saxen has 9.4 PPG with a team-high 9.1 RPG to lead the Gaels on the glass. Joshua Jefferson also has 9.4 PPG with 6.3 RPG as well this season. As a team, Saint Mary’s is averaging 71.3 PPG on 42.3% shooting from the field, 31.2% from three, and 65.5% from the foul line this season.

Boise State vs. Saint Mary’s Pick

I’m going to back Saint Mary’s here. These are two teams that don’t put up high numbers, but for Saint Mary’s, it’s usually by choice as this Gaels team likes to hang their hat on their defense. Boise State’s a decent team with experience, but I think Saint Mary’s defense ends up being too much here. Give me the Gaels.
