The last possession of the half was a carbon copy of how the game’s gone. UC Riverside had the ball, the Matador defense swarmed them, provoking a battle for a ball that ended up loose in the CSUN paint and that no one was able to pick up before the half-ending buzzer sounded.

CSUN’s leading 29-26. Josh Jenkins leads all scorers with 10 points.

UC Riverside’s shooting 50 percent from the floor, but has 10 turnovers. CSUN’s got nine.
