Cal State Northridge Matadors completes a short-two game road trip on Saturday when they travel to the desert to take on the New Mexico Lobos. The Matadors and Lobos are meeting for a second straight year. Anthony Mathis gave UNM an 87-84 victory as he hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer.UNM is now 6-0 all-time against CSUN with four of the wins coming at The Pit. This the Lobos first home game in the series since 2008.

Matadors looking for someone to step up offensive production

Cal State Northridge put up a gamely effort in their 87-67 setback to Oregon State on Tuesday despite being without 2018- 2019 Big West Player of the Year Lamine Diane. CSNU knocked down four 3-pointers over the opening five minutes to keep pace with OSU. With the game tied at 14, the Beavers went on an 11-0 run to build a 25-14 advantage with 10 minutes left. The Matadors were down 46-31 at halftime. CSNU scored six straight points to open up the second half, but OSU quickly answered back with a 6-0 spurt themselves to push the lead back to 14. Trailing 61-49, Terrell Gomez scored eight of his team-high 19 points as during an 8-2 run to get the Matadors within six midway through the half. However, CSUN went scoreless over a six-minute stretch and wouldn’t get any closer.

Elijah Harkless chipped in 15 points and five rebounds while Darius Brown contributed 13 points on five of nine shooting, including three of five from beyond the arc, along with eight rebounds and four assists. CSUN shot 38.3% from the field, 30.8% from beyond the arc, and 72.2% from the charity stripe. The Matadors were outrebounded 45-35 and committed four more turnovers than the Beavers (15-11).

New Mexico looking to earn first win over D-I opponent

New Mexico opened its season by whitewashing D-II Eastern New Mexico 92-71 on Wednesday. The Lobos held the lead for more than 35 minutes in the game. Trailing 9-6, UNM went on a 26-14 run to create some separation and took a 45-34 lead into halftime. The Lobos controlled the entire second half, extending their lead to as many as 28 points with around eight minutes left.

UNM shot a blistering 60% from the field as they dominated the paint, tallying 52 points or 56.2% of its point total. The Lobos also made seven of 20 (35%) of their 3-point attempts as well as 19 of 26 (73.1%) free throw attempts. Makauch Malauch led five players in double-figures with 16 points as he drained five of seven shots from the field, including two of four from beyond the arc. Carlton Bragg Jr., Corey Manigault, and Zane Martin each finished with 13 points while Keith McGee had 12. Bragg, Martin, and J.J. Caldwell had six caroms apiece.

Meanwhile, JaQuan Lyle chipped in with nine points along with 11 dimes -which was half of the Lobos assist total. Defensively, UNM held ENMU to 37.3% shooting overall and 33.3% from beyond the arc. The Lobos also forced 22 turnovers and recorded seven blocks.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I like New Mexico in this one as the Lobos are far superior in talent. UNM wants to push the pace, and the Matadors don't have the experience, shooters, or athletes to hang with the Lobos this year. Plus, UNM has a massive advantage in size.  Therefore, expect Bragg and Manigault to have huge games on both ends of the floor.

Prediction: New Mexico -13.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

While I believe that New Mexico will put a bunch of points and could push the 90-point plateau, I think that the Lobos defense is strong enough to keep the total under 163 points. The under has hit in each of the Lobos last five non-conference contests as well as 10 of their last 14 home games overall.

 

Prediction: Under 163.5
