SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Chris Eversley scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds Thursday night to lead Cal Poly to a 67-62 victory over Pacific.
Kyle Odister scored 14 points off the bench and Brian Bennett matched Eversley with 10 rebounds for the Mustangs (10-11, 6-5 Big West). Cal Poly is 8-1 at home and 2-10 on the road, though one of the road wins came at UCLA.
Travis Fulton, with 19 points, was the only player to score in double figures for the Tigers (13-9, 7-3). Pacific saw a four-game winning streak end.
Both teams were cold in the first half, after which Pacific led 21-20. The Mustangs shot 58 percent in the second half and finished at 41 percent.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
