At the half, the Gauchos only led CSULA by 4 points but in the beginning moments of the second half, you could tell this would be ugly. They broke the game open with a 19-2 run and they never looked back.
James Powell had a great all around game with 14 points and 5 assists. Sam Phippen had a career high 14 points. Jon Pastorek had a solid game with 11 points and 6 rebounds.
The Gauchos played without Justin Joyner, Chris Brew, and James Nunnally. James, who was late, had to say this about being late, "I f$%*$# up." I hope he doesn't again.
The Gauchos first true test of the season will be Tuesday night as Weber State comes to town at 7:00 p.m.
