NORTHRIDGE, Calif. (AP) - Chris Eversley scored 17 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Cal Poly to a 62-55 win over Cal State Northridge on Thursday.
Kyle Odister came off the bench to add 14 points for the Mustangs (9-14, 5-5 Big West), who ended a four-game losing streak.
Stephen Maxwell had 18 points for Northridge (12-14, 4-7). Stephan Hicks added 12 points, Tre Hale-Edmerson had 10 with 10 rebounds and 4 blocks and Josh Greene had 10 points.
