SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Chris Eversley scored a career-high 30 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the season to lead Cal Poly in a 75-64 victory over Cal State Northridge on Saturday night.
Cal Poly (9-9, 5-3 Big West) found itself trailing 49-47 with 13:04 remaining in the game after Josh Greene made a lay-up to break the tie but the Mustangs took over from there, going on a 28-15 run to end the game. Eversley hit the go-ahead 3-pointer to make it 50-49 and Cal Poly never looked back.

Brian Bennett had 17 points and six rebounds for Cal Poly.
Three other players were in double figures for Cal State Northridge (10-11, 1-8) as Trevone Williams led the way with 15 points and eight rebounds. Landon Drew had 10 points and nine assists and Stephen Maxwell chipped in with 14.
With a trio a top recruits from Philadelphia, the Penn State basketball program is primed to finally turn a corner.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
