Why San Diego State Will Win

San Diego State catches Nevada at a downturn. Nevada recently lost to their in-state rival UNLV at home, but losing their star scorer Caleb Martin was bigger. Despite no given timetable, Martin is likely out until the MW tournament. The team’s leading scorer is going to cost Nevada seeding in the bracket, and on Saturday a young team like San Diego State could run the tables in Reno.

San Diego State was thoroughly handled in Fresno, but the silver lining of the loss? Malik Pope earning a double-double and freshman Matt Mitchell contributing 16 points in 34 minutes. Nevada held UNLV star Brandon McCoy under 10 points, but let Jovan Mooring over 30 points. If San Diego State plays loose and smart, they have shooters that go over 30 points too.

Score Prediction

San Diego State 68, Nevada 74
