SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Chris Eversley scored 19 points and Cal Poly overcame a 17-point deficit for a 68-62 over UC Riverside on Thursday night.
Eversley also had five assists.
Cal Poly had a 31-26 rebounding advantage, with U'u Drake getting eight.
Neither team visited the free-throw line often. Cal Poly was 8 of 11 and UC Riverside was 7 of 14.
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.
