UC Santa Barbara @ UNLV, Dec. 15
The Big West champion Gauchos are locked and loaded for another run at a title and are bolstered by the return of Big West Player of the Year Orlando Johnson and talented forward James Nunnally. Defensive continuity is the name of the game for the Gauchos, and they'll need to be on the same page as a team to slow down big time scorer Tre'Von Willis, who scored 17.2 points per game last season and helped carry the Rebels to a 25-win campaign. The Gauchos are the prohibitive favorite in the Big West going into this season, and a win against a solid UNLV team would go a long way in making the conference look good.
