. .

San Diego State and Saint Mary’s meet halfway between their locations in a neutral seat game at Mott Gym in San Luis Obispo, California.

The Gaels have an impressive 53-33 loss to the US state of Colorado, while the Aztecs suffered their first loss of the season to BYU (72-62).

Saint Marys has played one of the best defenses in head coach Randy Bennett’s 20 years in Moraga. The Gaels are allowed to top 25 in 2-point percent, which limits the opponents to only 42%.

After a season opener 73-56 against Memphis in November, you enter this game with a winning streak of eight games. 25th.

Bennett’s teams are always strong on the defensive boards, and this year’s Gaels rank 20th according to KenPom. Place in terms of defensive rebound efficiency. You have six players on average 3. 8 rebounds or more led by striker Kyle Bowens 5. 8 per game in approx. 20 minutes a night.

The Gaels’ top scorer is senior Tommy Kuhse (15). 4 PPG, 3. 8 RPG, 6. 3 APG, 38. 5% 3 points), which has almost tripled its score per game compared to last season. Sophomore Alex Ducas (10. 9 PPG, 5. 3 RPG) and 6-foot-10 striker Matthias Tass (10. 2 PPG, 4. 3 RPG, 1. 1 BPG) help to limit the opponents’ chances to a second chance.

The Gaels also distributed the floor with Quinn Clinton (41). 4% 3 points) and newcomer guard Leemet Bockler (42. 3% 3 point).

Bennett teams rarely beat themselves, finishing 32nd with just 11. Place in the country. 1 turnover per game.

In many ways, the state of San Diego is a reflection of Saint Mary – but sportier.

The Aztecs got off to a perfect 5-0 start before tripping over BYU at home. You are on the 26th. Rank in Adjusted Defensive Efficiency, including eleventh best Defensive Steal Percentage per KenPom. The state of San Diego ranks 57th at 17. Place in the nation. 2 sales are forced per game.

Her offense is spearheaded by senior Matt Mitchell, 16. 3 PPG, 3. 8 RPG) and Jordan Schakel (13. 2 PPG, 3. 7 RPG). Both guards steal more than one game per game on average while shooting at least 35% from 3-point land. In SDSU’s 80-68 win against No.. 23 Arizona State, Schakel scored 25 points and went 5-on-9 from beyond the arc.

The Aztec presence inside has been significantly bolstered with the return of 6-foot-10 junior Nathan Mensah, 8. 8 PPG, 7. 2 RPG) who missed the last 19 games of last season with a breathing problem. He had 17 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks in defeating the Sun Devils.

Similar to Saint Mary, the Aztecs purposely play basketball, taking one of the slowest steps in college basketball. The state of San Diego ranks 326 at the adjusted pace. Place, the Gaels the 354. place.

I prefer the sportier team in this battle for neutral position between two of the best basketball schools in California. This will be a slow game with the Aztecs having more offensive options outside of the Gaels jump shooting.

After an embarrassing home defeat to BYU, I expect Brian Dutcher to have the Aztecs ready from the start. Look for Mitchell and Schakel to level Mensah’s inner game and end the Gaels’ eight game winning streak.
