Aside from the fact they have home-court advantage, the Bobcats are 55th in the nation in offensive rebounds, which will kill the offensive momentum for San Jose State. The Spartans will get a solid effort from Welage and Gary Williams Jr, but it won’t be enough to stop MSU from evening its record at 2-2. Marcus Colbert will notch double-digit points in the win.
