UC Riverside 70, CS Northridge 61

Javon Borum scored 23 points and made five 3-pointers to lead UC
Riverside to a 70-61 win over Cal State Northridge on Thursday
night.

Elliott Berry and Phil Martin added 15 points each and Daymond
Cowlah 14 for the Highlanders (7-8, 2-1 Big West), who snapped a
12-game losing streak against Cal State Northridge. Cowlah – a
freshman who started at guard because Kareem Nitoto missed the game
due to a death in his family – had seven assists and five
steals.

Josh Greene had 17 points and Lenny Daniel 13 points and 14
rebounds for the Matadors (4-12, 1-3).

An 11-0 run during a 3:46 stretch of the second half gave UC
Riverside control. Borum had five points, including a three-point
play, and Martin added two jumpers during the spree, which gave the
Highlanders a 45-35 cushion.

Dathan Lyles and Rashaun McLemore scored 10 points each for Cal
State Northridge.
