What to Know

The Arizona Wildcats' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the North Dakota State Bison at 9 p.m. ET Nov. 16 at McKale Memorial Center. The Wildcats will be strutting in after a win while North Dakota State will be stumbling in from a loss.

Arizona simply couldn't be stopped last week, as they easily beat the UTRGV Vaqueros at home 104-50. Arizona's center Christian Koloko was one of the most active players for the team, dropping a double-double on 18 points and 11 boards in addition to five blocks.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for North Dakota State as they fell 64-62 to the UNLV Rebels on Monday. The top scorer for North Dakota State was forward Rocky Kreuser (17 points).

Arizona is the favorite in this one, with an expected 17-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.

The Wildcats' victory brought them up to 2-0 while the Bison's defeat pulled them down to 2-1. A couple last-season stats to keep an eye on: Arizona have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 27.60%, which places them first in college basketball. Less enviably, North Dakota State has only been able to knock down 37.40% percent of their shots, which is the 19th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against North Dakota State.
