Hogg leads Texas A&M over CS Northridge in Wooden Legacy
FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) D.J. Hogg scored 25 points, Admon Gilder added 17 points and seven rebounds, and Texas A&M cruised to a comfortable 95-73 win over Cal State Northridge in the first round of the Wooden Legacy at Cal State Fullerton on Thursday.
The Aggies (3-1) used a 27-4 run over the final 7:31 of the first half to separate from the Matadors (2-3), holding CSUN without a field goal for the final 9:12 and off the scoreboard entirely for the final 4:28.
Hogg provided the offense early on for Texas A&M, scoring 10 of the team's first 14 points, but things got stagnant after he picked up his second foul with 15:11 remaining and sat for the rest of the half. It wasn't until Gilder and Tyler Davis got going, combining for 18 points and eight assists in the half, that Texas A&M found its footing.
Micheal Warren had 19 points and Tavrion Dawson added 13 for CSUN, which has now dropped its three games against Power 5 opposition by an average of 21.3 points.
