FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) — Kyle Austin scored 35 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Saturday night to lead UC Riverside to a 76-59 victory over Cal State-Fullerton.
Austin, a 6-foot-8 junior, was 13-for-21 from the field — including all three of his 3-point attempts — and 6-for-6 from the free-throw line for the Highlanders (9-14, 3-8 Big West).
No other Highlanders scored in double figures, but Larry Gurganious matched Austin's 11 rebounds. Riverside outrebounded Fullerton 39-24 and made all six of their shots from behind the 3-point line.
Aaron Thompson led the Titans (11-11, 5-5) with 16 points. Jacques Streeter scored 13 points and Bryce Webster 11 for Cal State-Fullerton.
UC Riverside never trailed in the game and led 36-27 at halftime.
