The Utah Utes and Saint Mary’s Gaels face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at McKeon Pavilion. You’re welcome to read our Utah vs St. Mary’s Gaels Prediction.

Utah Having Some Issues

Utah has lost a couple of games in a row and they really struggled in the last game. Utah’s defense gave up 91 points to St John’s and led to the defeat. The only real bright spot was Branden Carlson was one of the only bright spots putting up 22 points, eight rebounds, and two assists. Utah is averaging 81.6 points while their defense is giving up 71.2 points per game. The offense is ranked 71st and in this game they are going to need to get the offense out to a fast start early. Carlson is averaging 19.4 points and he’s going to need to have a big game here.

St Mary’s Looks to Build on Last Game

St Mary’s last game came against the Davidson Wildcats and they ended up with a blowout victory. St Mary’s gave up only 55 points against Davidson and that was enough for the blowout victory. Alex Ducas was the top player for St Marys putting up 23 points, five assists, and one rebound. Saint Mary’s on the season is averaging 71.3 points while their defense is giving up 57.8 points per game. The defense is ranked 6th in the league and they are going to need the defense to step up in a big way here. 

Shane’s Free Pick

St Mary’s knows this game is going to come down to the defense, and I expect their defense is going to step up in a big way. Utah’s defense also isn’t elite giving up 71.2 points per game and they are going to really struggle again in this game to defend. Saint Mary’s offense is going to run up the score and that will be the difference as they get the job done. Back Saint Mary’s against the spread.
