Cal State Northridge 79, Loyola Marymount University 62

CSUN dominated LMU last night, holding them to 28 percent shooting with stifling defense. Second-year Matador Coach Jason Flowers has done amazing things with this team, from development to recruiting. They have six players six feet tall and up – a forest.

The Lions’ Alex Cowling is an amazing player, and LMU has a lot of great things going for them. But CSUN has depth. I will definitely be checking out both teams again as the season progresses.
