UNLV Rebels vs. California Golden Bears

Where: Haas Pavilion, Berkeley, CA

When: Tuesday, November 12, 11:00 PM. ET.

The California Golden Bears will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the UNLV Rebels on Tuesday night.

Rebels Looking For First Road Win Of The Year

The Rebels are coming off a 60-56 loss to Kansas State, giving them their first loss of the season. They will be trying to bounce back from the loss and pick up their first road win of the year when they take on the Golden Bears on Tuesday.

UNLV hasn’t played well offensively, averaging 71 points per game. The team is shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 31.1 percent from three-point range. They will need to score more than the 56 points they scored in their last game if they want to best the Golden Bears.

Amauri Hardy leads the Rebels with 21 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game. Elijah Mitrou-Long is averaging 10.5 points, four rebounds, and four assists per game, while Cheikh Mbacke Diong is averaging 10.5 points and 14 rebounds per game.

The Rebels have played better on the defensive end, holding opponents to 65.5 points per game. They gave up only 60 points in their last game and will need a similar performance to give themselves a chance to get the win.

Golden Bears Going For Second Consecutive Win Over Rebels

The Golden Bears got off to the start they were looking for, picking up a win over Pepperdine in their season opener. They will be going for their second win in a row and second consecutive win over the Rebels when they play on Tuesday.

California played well offensively in its season opener, scoring 81 points in the win. The team shot 57.4 percent from the field and 52.6 percent from three-point range. They will run away with this game if they shoot the ball that well on Tuesday night.

Matt Bradley led the team with 25 points and five rebounds. Andre Kelly finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Paris Austin added 14 points, four rebounds, and three assists.

The Golden Bears weren’t as sharp defensively, giving up 71 points in the win. With the Rebels struggling offensively, their defense should be good enough to keep the Rebels under 70 points if they want to win the game.
