Pioneer men fall in tough competition

The Cal State East Bay men's basketball team hung with the 17th-ranked school in the nation on February 14th, but ultimately fell just shot in its bid for an upset with an 80-73 loss to Cal State San Bernardino (18-3, 15-2 CCAA). It's just the fourth home loss of the season for the Pioneers (7-16, 4-13 CCAA).
"Coach Oliver has one of the best teams in the country," said head coach Gus Argenal. "They are explosive and have the ability to play any style. We felt our game plan gave us a great chance to win, and our guys executed for the majority of the game."
The Cal State East Bay Pioneer men's basketball team ran into a hot-shooting UC San Diego squad on February 15th, losing at home to the Tritons by a score of 83-67. The Pioneers (7-17, 4-14 CCAA) shot 48 percent in the game and got a career-high 14 points from Aaron Cameron, but it wasn't enough to overcome a UCSD team that scored 49 second-half points.
