College Roundup: Cal Poly men's basketball team routed at Loyola Marymount

The Cal Poly men’s basketball team fell apart in the second half, losing at Loyola Marymount 79-59 on Tuesday night.

The Mustangs (4-6) only trailed by two at halftime but were outscored 46-28 in the second half. Cal Poly coach Joe Callero was ejected after his second technical foul.

One of the lone bright spots for Cal Poly was forward Chris Eversley, who was the only Cal Poly player to score in double figures. He had a game-high 21 points on 9-for-16 shooting and led Cal Poly with seven rebounds. The rest of the Mustangs shot 31.8 percent from the field.

Anthony Ireland scored 20 points for the Lions (7-4), including a 10-for-10 effort from the free-throw line. Ireland had more free-throw attempts than the entire Cal Poly team. The Mustangs were 9 for 9 from the line,  and the Lions were 23 for 26.

Cal Poly fell to 0-4 on the road and its away schedule does not get any easier, as the Mustangs play at Pittsburgh and Stanford to close out 2013.
