UCSB vs. SLO StatSheet comparison

http://dailygaucho.com/california-santa-barbara-basketball/compare_stats/cal-poly

UCSB is more efficient on offense than Cal Poly-SLO, but the Gauchos turn the ball over more than the Mustangs, don't rebound as well on offense, and don't get to the free throw line as often.

UCSB vs CSUN (2010-2011) StatSheet comparison

http://dailygaucho.com/california-santa-barbara-basketball/compare_stats/cal-state-northridge

UCSB is more efficient on offense and commits fewer turnovers than CSUN.  However, the Gauchos don't rebound as well on offense, and don't get to the free throw line as often as the Matadors.

These statistics suggest the Matadors are more aggressive on offense, and probably favor a faster-paced game.  The game will again be an interesting contrast in playing styles.  Whichever team controls the tempo to their preference will probably win the game.

UCSB is more efficient on offense than Boise State.  However, the Gauchos commit more turnovers, don't rebound as well on offense, and don't get to the line as often as the Broncos.

The Broncos spread their points around more, with four players averaging in double figures.  By contrast, the Gaucho scoring load is concentrated between Orlando Johnson and James Nunnally.
