Cuesta men's basketball team rallies to win consolation title

Brett Hartshorne had 21 points and nine rebounds, Oscar Pedroso supplied 19 points and four assists, and Cuesta College’s men’s basketball team rallied for a 61-49 home win over College of the Sequoias in the consolation final of the 45th Rabobank Basketball Tournament on Sunday.

Pedroso, a sophomore swingman, was named to the all-tournament team.

“We seemed to have a very good game plan today,” Cuesta head coach Rusty Blair said. “We played 2-3 zone, our conditioning was good and we basically controlled the tempo.”

Alex Igual had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Cougars (2-1), and Kyle Geer contributed 10 points and six assists.

Cuesta overcame a 34-26 halftime deficit and committed only eight turnovers in the game.

The tournament title went to West Hills, which downed Allan Hancock 84-76 in the final.
