#15 San Diego State Aztecs at California Golden Bears

Wednesday December 8, 2010 10:30 PM EST

Line: San Diego State -5

The Aztecs are looking to continue their strong campaign this season with another big road win. They beat Gonzaga on the road in early November 79-76 when the Zags had the #12 ranking. Cal has bounced back after a hickup in their season with 2 straight wins. One was vs UC Davis, and the other Iowa State. Neither team has been that great this year and the Bears are up against their 2nd ranked opponent this season.

Stats to consider:

San Diego State Aztecs:

  • San Diego State is 8-0 with a 3-0 road record.
  • Points per game: 77.1 (59th)
  • Field Goal PCT: .521 (5th)
  • Rebounds per game: 36.4 (158th)
  • Assists per game: 13.8 (141st)

Cal Golden Bears:

  • Cal is 5-2 with a 3-0 home record.
  • Points per game: 66.6 (235th)
  • Field Goal PCT: .432 (200th)
  • Rebounds per game: 37 (127th)
  • Assists per game: 14.4 (100th)

What to watch for:

  • The big play man for the Aztecs has been Sophomore F Kawhi Leonard who leads the team with 16.3 PPG and 10.4 RPG. He has also kicked in 2.5 APG.
  • Aztecs Senior F Malcom Thomas has averaged 9.3 PPG and 5.9 RPG and looks to give San Diego State a height advantage.
  • Cal will need a big game from Senior C Markhuri Sanders-Frison. He is averaging 8.7 PPG and leads the team with 7.1 RPG.

This has been an up and down season for Cal already making this a tough basketball pick. They beat #20 Temple early in the season 57-50 then came back and lost to Notre Dame the next night 57-44 scoring only 5 points in the first half. The Aztecs only have 1 victory out of their 8 that came within 5 points and that was at Gonzaga in a 79-76 victory. Look for the Aztecs to be able to shoot the ball more effectively than Cal and keep a high Field Goal PCT. Cal will not be able to keep up in this one even though they are at home.
