It's hard to win when you don't work as a unit and post 16 fewer assists than your opponent, a fact San Diego found out the hard way on Saturday. They were completely outmatched by the Gaels on the road and fell 88-62. San Diego has struggled against the Gaels recently, as their game on Saturday was their 11th consecutive lost matchup.
