What to Know

The Santa Clara Broncos' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers at 9 p.m. ET Dec. 7 at Leavey Center. The Broncos are expected to win again but are hoping to meet expectations this time.

Santa Clara was close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 78-75 to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. Despite the defeat, Santa Clara got a solid performance out of guard Jalen Williams, who had 28 points in addition to five boards.

Meanwhile, Mount St. Mary's was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 61-55 to the Loyola-Maryland Greyhounds.

This next matchup looks promising for Santa Clara, who are favored by a full 16 points. Those burned by picking them against the spread this past Saturday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Santa Clara is now 6-3 while the Mountaineers sit at a mirror-image 3-6. Two stats to keep an eye on: The Broncos come into the contest boasting the 10th highest field goal percentage in college basketball at 50.50%. Less enviably, Mount St. Mary's has allowed their opponents to shoot 48% from the floor on average, which is the 10th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against Mount St. Mary's.
