The Matadors’ (7-22, 2-11 Big West) inability to snag rebounds and contain the UC Irvine Anteaters’ (16-10, 9-3 Big West) 3-point shooting early doomed them as they lost 67-58. After getting blown out in the first game against the Anteaters, the Matadors came out looking to prove a point, jumping...

After Stephan Hicks missed all of his field goal attempts vs. the No.2 Arizona Wildcats on Sunday, Hicks and the CSUN Matadors (1-2) were on a mission vs. the Montana State Bobcats (0-3). The Matadors pulled out a 72-65 victory over the Bobcats at the Matadome in CSUN's home opener Wednesday eveni...

IRVINE – To say the 16th season of head coach Bobby Braswell’s career at CSUN has been a struggle would be putting it lightly. Already ineligible to play in the Big West Conference Tournament to start the year, Braswell’s Matadors have taken enough tumbles through 2011-12 to ensure the coach will finish with ...

Going down the wire in a seesaw battle between teams in the opposite poles of the Big West Conference standings Thursday night, it was Cal State Fullerton’s turn at attempting to swing up on the scoreboard, and guard Kwame Vaughn delivered with a head-first driving layup to put his team up two. Given only 3.8 seconds to shoot back, the Matadors were in a dan...

With CSUN head coach Bobby Braswell feeling under the weather, assistant coach Danny Sprinkle was in charge as his team faced an opponent who is on a seven-game losing streak. As both teams took the court and Pacific went on an 8-0 run with 13:17 left in the first half, it was clear the team the Matadors w...

Offense ... or lack thereof. The Matadors started off the year cold offensively, and seven games into the season, they still haven’t shaken their shooting woes. After a 71-58 loss to Santa Clara Saturday night where CSUN shot 30.6 percent from the field and 29 percent from downtown, the Matadors' shooting percentage has now dropped to 34 percent...

Four field-goal attempts into his night, CSUN guard Josh Greene’s bid to snap out of his early-season shooting funk wasn’t looking promising. Even as the Matadors (1-3) were beginning to run away with what eventually became a 95-68 win against overmatched San Diego Christian, Greene kept stru...

M-Bball: Badly out-rebounded in last outing, CSUN looks forward to bounce-back home game vs. San Diego Christian

The Matadors seem to be going backwards three games into the young season. Three days after putting up a valiant fight in a season-opening 66-59 loss at USC on Nov. 11, CSUN travelled to Hawai’i and was handed a humbling 86-67 defeat. Then on Saturday, Boise State bulldozed CSUN (0-3) by 42 points. “Our defense wasn’t on top,” CSUN guard Vinnie McGhee said of the 103-61 loss to the Broncos. “We...

With the Matadors having the youngest roster in Division I basketball, it’s understandable if they have a couple rough outings to start the year, but what happened at Boise State Saturday afternoon was atrocious. CSUN recorded its third straight loss to open the season after it was demolished 103-61 against the Broncos at Taco Bell Arena. It was...

The Matadors were only down four points at halftime against Hawai’i Tuesday morning, but a 11-2 run by the Rainbow Warriors to start the second half paved the way for CSUN’s 86-67 lopsided loss. Fatigue could have played a factor in the Matadors’ second-half collapse with a long flight to Honolulu and a 11 p.m. (1 a.m PST) tip-off time, ...
