A day for big things

Big performances:

Cal State Northridge center Jasmine Erving put up a career-high 36 points in the Matadors’ romp over Cal State Irvine. CSUN is one win away from clinching a Big West Conference playoff spot.

UCLA junior forward Markel Walker had a triple-double in the Bruins’ victory over Washington State: 14 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists. It’s the first triple-double by a UCLA player since Noelle Quinn’s on Feb. 19, 2004.

Kelsey Bone is still showing up for #16 Texas A&M, who beat #25 Kansas. Bone lead the Aggies with 26 points.
