San Francisco won the first game in the series on Monday night at home, 72-62. The Dons were just a 4.5-point favorite going into the game. The Mean Green really struggled shooting, going just 4 of 21 from the arc and 27 of 69 from the field. San Francisco hit 14 3-pointers in the win, with Jordan Ratinho leading the way with five. All five Dons’ starters scored in double figures. Zachary Simmons did what he could for North Texas, pulling down 22 rebounds while scoring 10 points.
San Francisco is now 13-20 against the spread this season and it is 7-8 ATS on the road. North Texas is 18-12 ATS on the season and just 6-6 ATS at home. The Mean Green average 76.7 per game on offense at home while allowing 69.8 per game on defense at home. On the road, San Francisco is scoring 68.3 per game and allowing 71.2 per contest.
North Texas has the ability to win this series, the Mean Green just couldn’t hit their shorts in Game 1. They were able to avoid turnovers, but failed to produce a lot of assists. I expect the Mean Green to work harder for open shots tonight, which should lead to better shooting.
