California Baptist @ number 8 Texas
Current record: California Baptist 5-0; Texas 3-1
What to know
The California Baptist Lancers have enjoyed comfort at home their last five games, but now they have to hit the streets. They will face #8 Texas Longhorns at 8:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday at the Frank Erwin Special Events Center. The California Baptists will seek revenge for the 67-54 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played on November 12, 2019.
The Lancers certainly made it tougher, but they escaped with a 74-70 win over the Northern Colorado Bears on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Texas simply couldn’t be stopped on Saturday, when they easily beat the San Jose State Spartans at home 79-45. Guard Andrew Jones and forward Tre Mitchell is one of the main players for the Longhorns as the former has 13 points and the latter has 14 points along with eight tables. Jones had some trouble finding a foothold against Northern Colorado last Wednesday, so this is a step in the right direction. Jones’ points are the most he’s had all season.
The California Baptists had to know they were going to fight an uphill battle by the 22 point margin they were up against. Those lucky to them with Sunday odds may want to stop betting this time around as the team has yet to string consecutive wins with the odds.
Their victory overcame the California Baptist 5-0 and the Longhorns 3-1. We’ll see which teams can deliver on their success and which are certain to fall when the Winners and Texas clash.
