Why Fresno State Will Win

The two teams are a combined 0-4 against top 100 KenPom opponents this season, but either Fresno State or Oregon will leave the Save Mart Center having notched its first top 100 win of the year. Saturday will mark Oregon’s third game against a Mountain West opponent this season – the Ducks fell to Boise State on December 1 and thrashed Colorado State on December 8. Fresno will have to lock in on Elijah Brown and Troy Brown (unrelated) without its top defender Jaron Hopkins, who remains out with a back injury. Elijah Brown, the former New Mexico Lobo, has experience playing in Fresno, scoring 11 points and grabbing six rebounds in a 71-61 loss to the Bulldogs last February.

KenPom Line

Fresno State -2, o/u: 152
