Cal State men back in first alone

Don’t look now but the Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball team is back in its traditional perch atop the CCAA standings.

The Coyotes (13-7, 11-3) struggled early but have finally settled into a groove. Coach Jeff Oliver’s team beat Cal State Stanislaus 76-55 Saturday, marking the first time this season it has won back-to-back road games.

It looks like this team has finally realized it is going to get every team’s best shot.

Brandon Brown was nothing short of spectacular. In this weekend’s two games he managed 60 points and 18 rebounds. He had 39 Friday at Chico State and 21 Saturday against the Warriors.

It is one of the toughest road trips of the season with the team having to leave after the game on Friday and drive three hours to Turlock to play Stanislaus. And the Coyotes were a little beat up after the Friday game.

Next up for the Coyotes is the showdown against local rival Cal Poly Pomona at Kellogg Gymnasium. The Broncos are well-coached and always seem to get a liitle more jacked to play the Coyotes than the other way around. And they will no doubt be backed by a raucous crowd.

It should be a great game with a lot on the line.
