Previewing Tonight’s D2 Games

All times pacific.


Chadron State @ MSUB @ 6:30pm

This is a non-region game, so who knows, but good luck to MSUB! The Jackets are currently 3-0 against D2 teams, but we’re not entirely convinced of the D2 teams they’ve beat. Chadron State is currently 2-2 but we have no read on how good their competition is, because we don’t care enough to sort through the three regions worth of non-con they’re playing.

Prediction: Pick ’em.


SMU @ Cal State Monterey Bay @ 7:30pm

It’s complicated. Monterey Bay has lost two close games (against CWU & CU-PDX), lost a game via free throws (Cal State LA), and then won a game against Dominguez Hills by one. All of those were on the road. We’re inclined to think that they’ve been more battle tested and will be better at home. That said: We like and believe in SMU, but they were picked right in the same range as CWU & CU-PDX, so… We’ll see.

Prediction: Pick ’em.


Holy Names @ UAF pt. 2 @ 8pm

So the game last night went to 2OT with HNU eventually pulling out a win on the Tundra, which is quite honestly horrifying from a GNAC strength-of-schedule point of view. That said, obviously Fairbanks is gonna be out for revenge and the Hawks aren’t going to want them to get that revenge and blah blah blah, who knows?

Prediction: UAF gets their revenge.


Not too much to say. We’re curious about the Monterey Bay game, so… We’ll see. Good luck to the Yellowjackets, Saints, and Nooks.
