Current Records: San Jose State 8-3; Pacific 5-8

What to Know

The Pacific Tigers' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the San Jose State Spartans at 7 p.m. ET Dec. 17 at Spanos Center. The Tigers will be seeking to avenge the 78-66 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Dec. 11 of last year.

Pacific took their contest against the Cal State-Stanislaus Warriors on Tuesday by a conclusive 80-56 score.

Meanwhile, SJSU had enough points to win and then some against the Santa Clara Broncos on Saturday, taking their matchup 75-64. SJSU can attribute much of their success to forward Sage Tolbert III, who dropped a double-double on 18 points and 12 rebounds, and guard Omari Moore, who had 24 points and seven assists.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Pacific is expected to win a tight contest Saturday. But bettors beware: they are only 1-5 against the spread when favored.

Their wins bumped Pacific to 5-8 and the Spartans to 8-3. Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
