    FULLERTON If the Cal State Fullerton men's basketball team needed any motivation to get back on the winning track in the Big West race, all Coach Dedrique Taylor had to do was replay the second half of the team's last matchup with UC Riverside.

    Aggie fans have to wonder if Siler Schneider's heart-stopping 3-pointer that beat CSUN last week was the demarcation of better things to come for the UC Davis basketball men. Until that shot - which beat the visiting Matadors, 63-62, with 1.7 seconds left last Thursday - the Aggies were losers of eight of their last nine and looking like a team that had misplaced its identity.

    Jan 16, 2016 | The Press-Enterprise

    Out to prove that their 0-3 start in conference play was but a blip on the radar, and not an accurate reflection of the team's potential this season, the Highlanders showed grit in a hard-fought 75-72 victory on the road at Cal State Northridge on Saturday. "That was a big win on the road and I'm really proud of how our guys responded," said UCR coach Dennis Cutts, adding in jest, for the benefit of guard Jaylen Bland, standing nearby.

    The University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors hadn't exactly been the road warriors this season, playing just one game away from the islands prior to Thursday's Big West matchup at UC Riverside. UCR, which was trying to snap a three-game losing skid, was likely hoping for a dose of jet lag for the visitors, but instead it was a stagnant, slow starting Highlander team that couldn't match Hawaii early, with the Rainbow Warriors getting to loose balls, beating UCR down the court and dominating the boards.

    Jan 10, 2016 | The Press-Enterprise

    The vision of UC Riverside's Alex Larsson - all 6-foot-9 and 245 pounds of him - trying to stand his ground against UC Irvine redwood Mamadou Ndiaye, at 7-6 and 300 pounds, probably symbolizes the Highlanders' traditional Sisyphean struggle against the Big West's traditional powers. Every time the Highlanders think they can get that boulder up the hill, in other words, stuff happens.

Thursday night's meltdown in the conference opener against Cal State Fullerton, in which the Highlanders squandered a 20-point second half lead at home and lost to the Titans, 79-73, may have been dramatically awful.
