(NCAAB) Denver vs. St. Mary's, 11/20/2014 5:00 PM, Score: 62 - 78
Point Spread: -7.00 | -110.00 St. Mary's (Home)
Result: Win
This is an 8* play on the St. Mary's Gaels.

The Denver Pioneers won their season opener by a score of 54-38 over Idaho State. Considering the opponent, it wasn't a very impressive result. A closer look at the stats reveals that the Pioneers shot just 39% from the field, and they led by just two points at the half. They will need to be a helluva lot better than that tonight to avoid getting blown out by the Gaels. St. Mary's is 2-0, and both of it's wins have come by a double digit margin. The Gaels come in shooting better that 54% from the field, and even slightly higher from beyond the arc. They've also been impressive from the charity stripe, hitting 80%. The Pioneers hit all eight of their free throws against the Bengals, but it won't matter how well they shoot unless they get to the line more frequently. St. Mary's went to the free throw line 31 times in it's last game against New Mexico State, hitting 25 of those shots. The last time the Gaels hosted Denver, they won by a score of 77-47, and I wouldn't be surprised to see another blowout tonight.
