After holding Omaha to 43 points on Monday, the Roadrunners’ scoring defense is the 14th best in the country, as of Tuesday morning. CSUB is holding its opponents to 54.1 points per game. Only 13 of the 345 Division I teams have performed better.

“We’re very dangerous,” CSUB head coach Greg McCall said of his defense.

Green Bay leads the way with 46.1 points allowed per game.

CSUB’s 18.9 turnovers forced are 79th in the nation and its opponent shooting percentage is 67th. The Roadrunners do it all without being over aggressive with the fewest fouls called against it among Western Athletic Conference teams.

They mix zone, trap and man-to-man presses to force opponents into bad passes.

Guard Jazmine Johnson leads CSUB with 20 steals in 11 games and has just 17 turnovers. Aja Williams is second on the team with 15 steals.

The Roadrunners’ next game is Wednesday at Boise State. Tip off is at 6 p.m. The game will be streamed on the Mountain West Network and also broadcast by the Boise State Radio Network. Boise State is averaging 72.5 points per game.
