The 49er men will be looking to rebound from a tough loss at Cal Poly when they take on UC Santa Barbara this Saturday in the Thunderdome. Tip-off is slated for 4:05 pm and will be televised live on Fox Sports PrimeTicket.
UCSB defeated UC Irvine on Thursday night by a score of 74-71 and now have an identical record to LBSU (5-8, 1-1 Big West). The 49ers lead the all-time series 59-55, winning the last three match-ups including the last two meetings in Santa Barbara.
Thursday night's game versus Cal Poly saw James Ennis notch his 17th straight double-digit scoring game and his fourth contest above 20 points (22) this season. The game also saw transfer Keala King pick up the fifth double-double for a 49er this season as he tallied 16 points and 10 rebounds.
Dan Jennings, who was hindered by a stomach bug and tweaked ankle against Cal Poly, will be looking to get back in the double-digit scoring mix on Saturday.
LBSU will also be looking to pick up some steam on the boards after being out-rebounded by all but one Division I opponent this season. They held a three rebound advantage over the Mustangs on Thursday night after the first half, but Cal Poly won the rebound game in the end, tallying 18 offensive and 20 defensive rebounds (LBSU had 14 off/20 def).
