Western State Conference player of the year Oscar Pedroso was limited to just 3-of-10 shooting and 11 points as the Cuesta College men’s basketball team fell to Cerritos in overtime, 71-67, in the CCCAA Southern California Regional Playoffs on Friday night in Norwalk.

The Cougars (21-10) missed their first 11 field-goal attempts and went the first six minutes without scoring. Their defense kept them in the game, as they trailed by six after the slump trailed 32-23 at halftime.

Kyle Geer, Brett Hartshorne and Alex Igual combined for 30 of Cuesta’s 38-second half points to help the Cougars come back, but they shot 1 of 7 from the free-throw line in the final minutes of regulation.

Cerritos held a four-point lead for the majority of the overtime period. Cuesta had a chance to cut the lead to one with 11 seconds left, but Geer’s 3-point attempt was off.

Hartshorne finished with a game-high 16 points for the Cougars.
