CSU Northridge Matadors vs. Richmond Spiders

Where: Robins Center, Richmond, VA

When: Sunday, November 17, 4:00 PM. ET.

The Richmond Spiders will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the CSU Northridge Matadors on Sunday afternoon.

Matadors Trying To Snap Four-Game Losing Streak

The Matadors are off to a poor start this season, losing their first four games. They will be trying to break out of their slump with a win over the Spiders, which will give them their first win of the year.

If the Matadors want to pick up the win, they will have to do a better job on the defensive end than they have done so far. CSU Northridge is giving up 98.5 points per game, which is 325th in the country. They gave up 116 points in their last game and won‘t win too many games if they don’t to better than they have so far defensively.

The Matadors have played better on the offensive end, but with their defense playing so poorly, their offense hasn’t been a factor. The team is averaging 72.3 points per game, shooting 40 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range.

In their last game, Terrell Gomez led the Matadors with 23 points and two assists, while Brendan Harrick added 17 points and three rebounds.

Spiders Trying To Stay Perfect

The Spiders have won their first two games of the season, but they barely got past Vanderbilt in their last game and will be trying to jump out to a fast start in this game to prevent the Matadors from having a chance to hand them their first loss of the season.

Like the Matadors, the Spiders haven’t played well defensively this year, giving up 95 points per game. Their defense hasn’t cost them a game yet, but they will struggle this year if they don’t fix their defensive issues quickly.

Richmond has been great offensively, which has helped the team mask their defensive struggled. They are averaging 96.5 points per game, which is fourth in the country. The team is shooting 48 percent from the field and 38 percent from three-point range.

In their last game, the Spiders scored 93 points to pick up a one-point win over the Commodores. Jacob Gilyard led the way for the Spiders with 26 points, four assists, and seven steals. Blake Francis finished with 24 points and four rebounds, while Nathan Cayo added 20 points and eight rebounds.

Rating:

The Spiders have the edge in this game because they have the fourth-best offense in the country, averaging 96.5 points per game, and will cause a lot of problems for the Matadors, who have struggled on the defensive end and are giving up 98.5 points per game. Due to the fact that the Spiders are giving up 95 points per game, the Matadors might be able to keep the score close, but their offense hasn’t looked impressive this season, with the team topping 80 points only once in the four games they have played. The Matadors have lost each game they have played by an average of 26 points, so expect more of the same when they play the Spiders on Sunday.
