California @ Oregon State

Current Records: California 9-15; Oregon State 3-17

What to Know

After three games on the road, the Oregon State Beavers are heading back home. The Beavers and the California Golden Bears will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Gill Coliseum. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.

Oregon State has to be aching after a bruising 86-63 loss to the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday. Forward Glenn Taylor Jr. (15 points), forward Maurice Calloo (14 points), and guard Jarod Lucas (13 points) were the top scorers for Oregon State.

Meanwhile, California was close but no cigar on Saturday as they fell 68-64 to the Washington State Cougars. Guard Jordan Shepherd had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 33 minutes with 5-for-18 shooting.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Oregon State is expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past four games, so buyers beware.

Oregon State is now 3-17 while the Golden Bears sit at 9-15. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Beavers are stumbling into the game with the 25th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 75.6 on average. California has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 23rd worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 64.2 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
