Hoops Comes Close

    The UCSD men’s basketball team again flirted with victory, but again the impeding “”W”” was replaced with a big old “”L.””

    Against California State University Dominguez Hills on Friday, the Tritons found themselves up 33-30 at halftime. That was as good as it would get, as they were outscored in the second half 41-25 en route to losing 71-58.

    Sam Higgins was monstrous in the game, tallying 23 points.

    On Saturday against CSU Los Angeles, UCSD and CSULA were tied at 34 going into the break. The second half was a different story as UCSD was outscored 54-40, losing 88-74.

    Nick Christensen scored 18 points in the losing effort and Martin Michael chipped in with 15.

    The two losses dropped UCSD’s record to 3-22 overall and 2-18 in California Collegiate Athletic Conference play.

    UCSD wraps up its season at home this weekend. Cal State San Bernardino comes to town on Friday for a game at 6 p.m. and Cal Poly Pomona pays a visit on Saturday for a game at 8 p.m.
