Stephen Nover's CBB Tuesday Terminator
(NCAAB) Oregon vs. Saint Mary's-California, 11/23/2021 8:00 PM, Score: 50 - 62
Money Line: -124.00 Oregon (Away)
Result: Loss
Oregon lost some of its major talent from last season's team that won the Pac-12 title and reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. But the Ducks don't rebuild under Dana Altman. They reload. That's the case again this season. The Ducks look strong again thanks to recruiting and transfers to go with their existing talent. 

I have the Ducks power-rated much higher against Saint Mary's than the oddsmaker does. 

The situation here is good, too, for the Ducks. They had an easy win yesterday beating Chaminade, 73-49, while Saint Mary's had a close one with Notre Dame pulling out a 62-59 win. That was the Gaels' first real nonconference test. 

Oregon has something to prove after a loss to BYU last week. This is the Ducks' chance. Each team shares a common opponent, Texas Southern. St. Mary's beat the Tigers by nine points while Oregon defeated Texas Southern by 17 points.
