Stanislaus comes close but can’t overcome nationally ranked team

POSTED December 30, 2010 9:14 p.m.

Despite a strong first half performance by the Warriors, No. 15 Cal State Dominguez Hills Toros rallied and held off Cal State Stanislaus 64-53 at the Torodome in Carson on Thursday afternoon.
Four Toros accounted for 54 of the teams' 64 points as Cal State Dominguez Hills improved to 8-1 overall and 4-1 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. The Toros has now won seven straight against Stanislaus since 2007.
For Cal State Stanislaus, Evan Scott had 12 points — 10 in the first half — and 10 rebounds for his second consecutive double-double. Brett Sayad and Reggie Jones each chipped 10 points but the Warriors fell to 3-6 and 1-4 in the CCAA.
Again, behind Scott's hot start, the Warriors took control of the game early. Scott had the eight of the team's first 13 points. Prince Abidoye’s 3-pointer at 11:34 gave the Warriors a 16-7 early lead. At 18-9, however, CSUDH went on a 9-0 run to even the score and the tight battle was on.
Stanislaus held a slim 31-28 halftime lead and used a 6-1 run to start the second half to lead 37-29. But a 10-0 Dominguez Hills spurt quickly erased that Warrior lead, their last of the night. The Toros would built their lead up to 15 points, 58-43 at 6:33 left to play, and held on for the win.
Abidoye's second 3-pointer at 4:03 left to play pulled the Warriors within eight, but that was as close as Stanislaus would get.
