San Luis Obispo, CA (Sports Network) - Dylan Royer scored 23 points as the Cal
Poly Mustangs crushed the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos, 67-49 in a Big West
Conference matchup at Mott Gym.
Also scoring in double figures for the Mustangs (12-11, 8-5 Big West) was Kyle
Odister with 11 points off the bench as the team logged a third straight win.
The Gauchos (8-16, 4-9), losers of six of the last seven outings, were paced
by Alan Williams who produced a huge double-double consisting of 24 points and
17 rebounds, but Michael Bryson was the only other double-digit scorer for the
group with 10 points off the bench before fouling out.
Cal Poly shot just 9-of-30 from the floor in the first half, including 3-of-13
behind the 3-point line, but thanks to an 8-of-9 showing at the free-throw
line the host was still able to put up a 29-21 lead at the break.
In the second half the Mustangs left no doubt as they connected on 8-of-17
shots on the perimeter in order to cruise to the 18-point win.
UCSB was guilty of 16 turnovers and managed to pull down just five offensive
rebounds on the night.
