Warrior men no match for Pomona
Placeholder Image

The Warriors were held without a field goal for nearly 12 minutes in the second half as defending national champion Cal Poly Pomona beat Cal State Stanislaus, 52-37, Friday night.
Cal State Stanislaus shot a season-low 23.1 percent from the floor and snapped its two-game winning streak to fall to 5-8 overall and 3-6 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. The Warriors are now 0-4 in conference games on the road.
Cal Poly Pomona, which desperately needed a CCAA win, improved to 5-6 overall and 2-5 in league play. Dwayne Fells led the Broncos with 10 points.
Reggie Jones had 11 points for Cal State Stanislaus, but after he converted an and-one three-point play three-and-a-half minutes into the second half, the Warriors went quiet.
During the Warriors' 12-minute dry spell, the Broncos went on a 24-7 run — with CSUS' seven points from the free throw line — to turn a 17-17 halftime score into a 47-29 game.
Mactar Gueye finally ended the Stanislaus slump with a layup at 4:55 left to play. He would add another bucket two minutes later, but by then Pomona had stretched the game into a 19-point advantage after a pair of free throws.
Gueye finished with 11 points and 8 rebounds. The Warriors out-rebounded Pomona, 37-32. However, the 37-point total is a team-low since its last trip to Pomona when CSUS lost 65-32 last February.
The Warriors shot just 5-for-26 in the first half for 19.2 percent, but managed to hold Pomona in-check for a 17-17 halftime score. Stanislaus then made 7 of 18 chances in the second half to finish the game with a 27.3 shooting percentage.
The defending champs weren't exactly sharp either, hitting just 39 percent of their attempts against a solid Stanislaus defense. However six CPP three-pointers and the Bronco defense that held down the Warriors in the second half was the difference.
Three Broncos — Mitchel Anderson, Mark Rutledge and Donnelle Brooker — each added eight points.
Cal State Stanislaus will try and regroup as they visit Coussoulis Arena at Cal State San Bernardino for a 7:30 p.m. tipoff tonight.
