What to Know

The UTRGV Vaqueros have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. UTRGV and the California Baptist Lancers will face off in a WAC battle at 10 p.m. ET Wednesday at CBU Events Center. The Vaqueros should still be riding high after a victory, while California Baptist will be looking to right the ship.

Things were close when UTRGV and the Tarleton State Texans clashed this past Saturday, but UTRGV ultimately edged out the opposition 99-95.

Meanwhile, things couldn't have gone much worse for California Baptist as they lost 80-58 to the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks on Sunday.

UTRGV have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 10.5-point spread they are up against. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on UTRGV's opponents whenever they hit the road.

The Vaqueros' win brought them up to 15-15 while the Lancers' loss pulled them down to 15-14. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: UTRGV is stumbling into the game with the 361st most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 16.4 on average. California Baptist has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 41st worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11.1 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
