Air Force at South Dakota—South Dakota through injury and transfer lost their two stop scorers from last year that combined for 40 points per game. They look now into their supporting cast for more production scoring wise. This part of the country doesn’t attract many transfers. Air Force coming off a down season where they finished 5-20 overall and 3-17 in the Mountain West. Only two starters return from last year. Head coach Joe Scott is in his second tenure with the school entering his second year this time.

He has to get the Falcons competitive again and cutting down turnovers is a must. Play Air Force and South Dakota under 133.5.

UC Riverside at Arizona St—Sun Devils lacked size last year and it cost them in the win column. Team struggled to rebound on both ends of the court and scoring inside.

Riverside opened with a 13 point defeat to San Diego St. Highlanders were held to 53 points and 39% shooting in defeat.

Cal St Fullerton at San Jose St—Tim Miles takes over at San Jose St. He was out of coaching for two years since leaving Nebraska.
