UC Santa Barbara at Pacific (men) pregame

The Tigers open a crucial two-game homestand by hosting the Gauchos in a few minutes, before Cal Poly visits on Saturday.

Pacific won its first road game of the season at UC Davis 74-64 last Saturday and coach Bob Thomason wants his team to come home and establish an advantage at Spanos Center. The Tigers are 4-2 at home this season with its two losses coming by a combined six points to Oral Roberts and Santa Clara.

The Gauchos are 1-7 on the road this season and their level of play tends to depend on how they’re shooting. UC Santa Barbara is 5-0 this season when outshooting opponents and 0-8 when they are outgunned. The Gauchos are shooting 42.6-percent this season, while the Tigers are shooting 47.3-percent.

Look for that trend to play out with the Tigers prevailing 71-60.

More later.
