The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and the Long Beach State 49ers will meet up in college basketball action on Thursday.

Hawaii currently sits at 13-8 on the season. Following consecutive wins over UC Davis and Long Beach State, the Warriors dropped their last game on Sunday versus UCSB.

In the loss to the Gauchos, Hawaii’s Samuta Avea led the team with 13 points, six rebounds and one assist. The only other Warrior in double-figures during that defeat was Zigmars Raimo with 10 points and four rebounds.

Over on the Long Beach State side, they’re 8-15 this year. The Niners have lost their last five games to CSUF, CSUN, UCSB, Hawaii and UC Irvine.

In the loss to the Anteaters, Long Beach State’s Deishaun Booker put up 29 points with five assists and two rebounds. KJ Byers doubled up for the 49ers in that game with 15 points and 10 rebounds of his own.

The Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last four Thursday games and 7-2 ATS in their last nine overall. Hawaii is 7-2 ATS in their last nine versus the Big West and 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games.

Meanwhile, the Niners are 1-4 ATS in their last five overall and 1-4 ATS in the last five versus the Big West. LBSU is 1-5 ATS in their last six after a straight-up loss and 1-5 ATS in their last six Thursday games.

The last time these teams met wasn’t that long ago—January 31 in a 74-57 home victory for the Warriors. Hawaii was looking pretty good on the scoreboard and normally I’d say they’ll keep it going but the dud against UCSB gives me a little to think about.

Given their recent solid offensive performances, I’d like to take Long Beach State but I just can’t do it. I’ll take Hawaii, but in reality I’m staying away from this one.

Pick:
Hawaii Rainbow Warriors +1
