Basketball teams go 1-3 on road trip

Louis LaVenture,

A four-game Southern California road trip for the Cal State East Bay basketball teams yielded just one win over the weekend. Here’s how the women and men did:


The CSUEB women’s basketball team was able to split their road games over the weekend.

Things started rough for the Pioneers who fell to Cal State San Bernardino on Friday 59-47. However, they rebounded on Saturday in La Jolla and took down the UC San Diego Tritons in convincing fashion, 71-57.

It was a pair of guards, senior Shomari Harris and freshman Kayley Hsuing, that led the way for East Bay as the pair both scored 16 points each. Freshman forward Morgan Greene also scored in double-digits with 12 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists.

The women will also host Sonoma State tomorrow and San Francisco State on Saturday in Hayward with both games tipping off at 5:30 p.m.



The road was unkind to the men who fell to Cal State San Bernardino 82-74 on Friday and 84-45 to the UC San Diego Tritons on Saturday.

The two losses extended the Pioneer losing streak to four games and the men are now 12-11 overall and 5-10 in California Collegiate Athletic Association Conference games.

Despite the blowout loss on Saturday, there were some bright spots for the men in the eight-point loss on Friday. Senior forward Micah Dunhour got to the free throw line 13 times in just 134 minutes of playing time as he made 10. Dunhour finished the game with 16 points, 8 rebounds and also leads the team in both of those categories this season averaging 16.1 and 6.5, respectively.

The Pioneers will have a chance to end the losing streak this weekend when they host Sonoma State tomorrow and San Francisco State on Saturday. Both games will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Pioneer Gymnasium on the Hayward campus.
