Cal Poly falls to Riverside in first home game in nearly two months

Cal Poly loses to Riverside 57-46

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. Junior forward Alimamy Koroma led all players with 15 points and nine rebounds, but the Cal Poly men's basketball program – playing its first home game in 59 days – dropped a 57-46 decision to UC Riverside inside Mott Athletics Center Thursday evening.

Sophomore guard Kobe Sanders added a season best 10 points for Cal Poly (3-10, 0-2), which – playing its 800th Division I game – trailed by double digits at the break before opening the second half with a 14-2 run to regain an early first-half lead. The 36-34 advantage with 13 minutes remaining, however, marked Cal Poly's last time in front of UC Riverside (8-5, 1-1), which was limited to a 33.3 (17-for-51) percent field goal mark.

Cal Poly's 59-day gap between a Nov. 15 matchup versus Sacramento State and Thursday's game against UC Riverside is – by 19 days more than Northwestern State – the lengthiest stretch between home games of any Division I program this season.

The Mustangs close their two-game home stand against UC Davis on Saturday, Jan. 15. Tip time is 7 p.m.
