California Baptist vs Texas Rio Grande Valley Game Preview, WAC Tournament
Why UT Rio Grande Valley Will Win
The Vaqueros time up with lots and lots and lots of free throws.
They struggle to shoot from the outside, but they’re good at guarding the three, they’re not bad on the boards, and they like getting the ball inside and get to the line.
Now they have to make them.
They only hit 69% from the line, but they’ll get there well over 20 times and have to take advantage of the opportunities. They shot 22 in the 80-72 loss to California Baptist, but they only made half of them, If they can just hit 80% from the line …
Why California Baptist Will Win
The Lancers don’t have a massive problem with fouls. They’re not great at holding up, but as long as they only get whistled around 15 times or so, they’ll be fine.
They’re great at shutting teams down from three, and there’s no real worry about UT Rio Grande Valley from doing anything big from the outside. They have of force turnovers, get out on the move, and don’t get bogged down.
Again, don’t foul, and things should be fine.
California Baptist vs UT Rio Grande Valley: What’s Going To Happen
The Vaqueros aren’t shooting well.
The Lancers aren’t exactly Steph Curry from the field, but they’ve hit 25 threes over the last two games and it’s taken five games for UT Rio Grande Valley to generate that many.
California Baptist will get a few threes. That will be enough.
