Current Records: UNLV 4-4; San Francisco 8-0
What to Know
The San Francisco Dons will take on the UNLV Rebels at 10 p.m. ET this past Saturday at War Memorial Gymnasium. San Francisco is out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
It was a close one, but two weeks ago the Dons sidestepped the UAB Blazers for a 63-61 win. Having forecasted a close victory for San Francisco, the oddsmakers were right on the money. They got double-digit scores from four players: forward Yauhen Massalski (23), guard Khalil Shabazz (11), guard Gabe Stefanini (11), and guard Julian Rishwain (10).
Meanwhile, UNLV received a tough blow this past Wednesday as they fell 83-64 to the SMU Mustangs. The top scorers for UNLV were forward Royce Hamm Jr. (13 points), guard Bryce Hamilton (12 points), and guard Justin Webster (12 points).
This next contest looks promising for San Francisco, who are favored by a full 10.5 points. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past four games.
The Dons are now a perfect 8-0 while the Rebels sit at 4-4. A couple offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: San Francisco ranks 27th in college basketball when it comes to field goal percentage, with 49.10% on the season. On the other end of the spectrum, UNLV has only been able to knock down 40.20% percent of their shots, which is the 39th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. We’ll see if San Francisco’s 8.90% advantage translates to a win.
