San Diego @ California
Current Records: San Diego 2-0; California 0-2
What to Know
The San Diego Toreros will hit the road for the second straight game as they head to Haas Pavilion at 9 p.m. ET on Monday. They aren't favored, but they just beat the odds in their last contest, so don't count them out.
The Toreros were able to grind out a solid victory over the Nevada Wolf Pack this past Friday, winning 75-68. San Diego's Terrell Brown looked sharp as he had 16 points along with eight boards and seven blocks.
Meanwhile, the California Golden Bears were close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 55-52 to the UNLV Rebels. One thing holding California back was the mediocre play of guard Jordan Shepherd, who did not have his best game: he finished with only nine points on 3-for-17 shooting and turned the ball over four times in his 34 minutes on the court.
San Diego's win brought them up to 2-0 while California's defeat pulled them down to a reciprocal 0-2. Two last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: San Diego ranks 25th in college basketball when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 77.1 on average. Less enviably, the Golden Bears are stumbling into the game with the 24th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 65.4 on average.
