Cal Poly’s road struggles continue

The Cal Poly men’s basketball team’s road woes continued in a 77-60 loss at Cal State Fullerton on Wednesday night.

The Mustangs, who fall to 12-12 on the season and 8-6 in Big West Conference action, haven’t won away from home since the conference opener, a 58-48 win at UC Riverside on Dec. 29.

Chris O’Brien led Cal Poly with 13 points and nine rebounds off the bench. Kyle Odister added 11 points off the bench, and Jamal Johnson and Joel Alwich — starting in place of the injured Chris Eversley — added nine apiece.

The Mustangs fell behind early, trailing 40-23 at the half and were unable to close the gap in the second half.

Kwame Vaughn led the Titans (13-13, 6-8 Big West) with 23 points, making 10 of 13 shots at the free-throw line. The Mustangs attempted just 10 free throws as a team, making six.

Vaughn added seven assists, and D.J. Seeley had 21 for Cal State Fullerton.

Dylan Royer, who had a career-high 23 points in Cal Poly’s win over UC Santa Barbara on Saturday, shot 2 for 10 from behind the 3-point line, finishing with six points.

Cal Poly will host Loyola Marymount in a nonconference game on Saturday at 7 p.m.
