UCSB cruises past Cal Poly in Big West tourney quarterfinals
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Christian Terrell, Max Heidigger and Gabe Vincent scored 12 points apiece to help UC Santa Barbara beat Cal Poly 75-53 on Thursday night in the Big West Conference Tournament.
Second-seeded UCSB (23-8), which also beat the Mustangs 86-61 on Saturday night in the regular-season finale, will play No. 3 seed UC Irvine in the semifinals on Friday.
Vincent and Heidigger each hit a 3 in the first 56 seconds and UCSB never trailed. After Ami Lakoju scored six straight points to give the Gauchos a 19-8 lead, Cal Poly's Victor Joseph hit a jumper but Heidigger answered with back-to-back 3s and the Mustangs went more than 10 1/2 minutes before making another field goal. UCSB took a 45-18 lead into the break and cruised from there.
No. 7 seed Cal Poly (9-21) made just five field goals and shot 23.8 percent before the break - season lows for a half.
Joseph led the Mustangs with 13 points.
