Warriors fall in homestand finale
Placeholder Image
The Cal State Stanislaus men’s basketball players completed their longest homestand of the season in disappointing fashion, falling 74-68 to Cal State Monterey Bay at Warrior Arena on Saturday night.
In the five home games, the Warriors went 2-3.
This time, however, they managed to avoid another low-scoring affair after registering no more than 44 points against Cal State Dominguez Hills and Cal State L.A.
Stanislaus had a 28-22 halftime lead against Monterey Bay — thanks to shooting 50 percent from the field — before the Otters produced a 13-2 surge to begin the final 20 minutes of the game and gaining a 35-30 advantage. Monterey Bay never trailed after that.
The Warriors finished with three players in double digits, with Jordan Stokes tallying 17 points. Chad Johnson netted 14 points, and Matt Ibewiro added 12 as the Warriors fell to 9-9 overall and 5-8 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association.
Sean Jergo was one of four Otters (7-11 overall, 5-8 CCAA) who produced double-figure nights. He scored 17 points.
Stanislaus will now begin an important stretch away from home. The Warriors, who currently hold down the eighth and final spot to advance to the conference tournament with Monterey Bay, starts a three-game road trip at league-leading Cal State San Bernardino (13-4, 11-2 CCAA) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
In a previous match against San Bernardino, the Warriors were edged 70-68.

Gowan’s career-high not enough
Cal State Stanislaus guard Christin Gowan dropped a career-high 21 points but her women’s basketball team still suffered a 64-52 loss to visiting Cal State Monterey Bay at Warrior Arena on Saturday. The defeat marked the end of the Warriors’ five-game homestand, in which they went 3-2.
The three wins improved the Warriors’ overall mark to 5-12, and 4-9 in the CCAA. They sit in 9th place in the league standings with San Francisco State, as the top eight teams advance on to the conference tournament.
The Warriors have nine games left, starting with a road contest against Cal State San Bernardino at 5:30 p.m. on Friday that begins a three-game away series.

Warriors post top 8 track showings
Annie Burlingham and April Montgomery finished their trip at the Bronco Track and Field Invitational in Nampa, Idaho, on Saturday in the top eight of their respective events.
Burlingham finished seventh in the pole vault by clearing 11 feet, 7 3/4 inches — a mark that is good enough for an NCAA provisional qualifying score, 13th in the nation and matched the height she achieved in the previous weekend.
Montgomery clocked a time of 2 minutes, 17.98 seconds in the 800 meters to place eighth.
