Why Fresno State Will Win

Fresno shoots the ball really well. The Bulldogs are shooting 50% overall and 40% from three. The Rams defensive screen game and tendency to collapse on drives to the basket leaves shooters open outside the arc. The Rams are susceptible to big runs. They let their opponents go on big runs and then attempt their comeback. If the Bulldogs can go on a run and then hold off the Rams own run then they can control this game.

Why Colorado State Will Win

Colorado State plays well at home. They hold a 7-1 record at home. The Rams have a tendency to shoot bad shots. This leads them to a bad cycle of shoot and pray. If the Rams can play their inside out game that worked so well against the Colorado Buffaloes earlier this season, then the Rams have a shot. The Rams need to work the ball into the post and control turnovers if they want to even their conference record.
