Previewing Tonight’s Games

All times pacific.

NNU @ MSUB @ 6pm

Really excited about this game because MSUB is notoriously hard to play at, NNU looked good and definitely has a good team but lost to CWU pretty badly, so they’re going to be looking to bounce back. MSUB had an “okay” non-con, we get what their record looks like but… When you dive into the schools, it becomes less impressive. Their best wins came in the first week of the season against Sonoma and East Bay, both of whom are now in the bottom three of the CCAA, so… Both teams clearly can win this game, the question is: who will? We don’t know.

Prediction: Pick ’em.

SFU @ SPU @ 7pm

We’re again really curious about the numbers. It should be a blow-out in SPU’s favor. Will it be? That is the question. We honestly have no idea. SFU is capable of the upset, SPU is capable of letting them upset, but the Falcons are also capable of blowing out the Clan to a ridiculous degree, so we’ll go ahead and fall somewhere in the middle.

Prediction: Like SMU, SPU wins comfortably.

WWU @ SMU @ 7:30pm

This should be a good game. WWU is clearly more talented but SMU clearly has a fair amount of talent and is much better at teamwork. The Vikings have the talent to win comfortably, but in our opinion they lose the coaching battle. Tony Dominguez has a history of doing less with more; Alex Pribble has started to consistently prove his ability to do more with less. SMU is a hard school to recruit to and yet Prib’s been able to take the best guys he can get, key in on their very different strengths, and create cohesion, so… On any given day, if they’re cohesive they can beat anyone; if they’re not, almost anyone can beat them.

Prediction: Pick ’em.

Should be a great night of basketball, we’re excited to watch! Tweet at us!
