Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

West coast college basketball pits the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks against the San Francisco Dons.

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are mired in a five game slide after a 79-74 loss at San Jose State as a one point road dog on Saturday. Northern Arizona held a ten point lead at the halfway point before San Jose State took command over the final 20 minutes. The Lumberjacks sank shots at 37.9% and were outscored 30-18 at the charity stripe.

Jonathan Andre carried the NAU offense with 21 points and eight rebounds on 7-13 accuracy and 5-7 at the line with Luke Avdalovic netting 20 points on 6-12 from beyond the arc. Davon Bolton gave the Lumberjacks 15 points and four steals on 5-8 from the field followed by an eight point, four board effort from Carlos Hines.

The San Francisco Dons improved to 10-1 following a 68-54 win against Cal State Fullerton on Sunday. San Francisco jumped all over the Titans with a 38-18 lead at the intermission before going in to cruise control behind a 49%-40% shooting edge including a 10-26 performance from beyond the arc.

Frankie Ferrari topped the Dons offense with 16 points and four helpers on 5-7 marksmanship followed by Charles Minlend with 14 points and three yanks on 4-13 shooting and 5-7 at the stripe. San Francisco saw 13 points from Jordan Ratinho on 5-10 from the floor while Matt McCarthy added seven points, six boards and three steals.

Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. San Francisco Dons are 3-0-2 ATS in their last 5 home games and San Francisco Dons are 4-0-2 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and San Francisco Dons are 4-0-2 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

If San Francisco played their game for 40 minute they would be the choice but I don’t know if the Dons call off the wolves…

Pick:
San Francisco -23

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
