Humboldt State men stun No. 13 UC San Diego

It was another Saturday night thriller at Lumberjack Arena, as the Humboldt State men’s basketball team knocked off the No. 13 team in the country, UC San Diego, by a score of 67-65.

Freshman Amari Green got the winning basket to break the tie in the closing seconds, as the jacks responded to a disappointing loss at home to Cal State San Marcos two days before.

“It was such a rollercoaster from Thursday’s game to tonight’s victory,” HSU head coach Steve Kinder said. “I am so proud of how the guys refocused so quickly and came out and played a tremendous game.”

With the win, the Jacks improve to 9-5 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association and re-take sole possession of third place in the standings, one win ahead of Cal Poly Pomona (8-5), and two wins behind both Cal State East Bay (11-2) and UC San Diego (11-2).

The Jacks are 15-7 overall and 10-1 at home.

UC San Diego dropped to 16-4 overall.

In women’s action, HSU fell to visiting UC San Diego by a score of 72-61.

The loss ends a five-game winning streak for the Jacks, who dropped to 9-5 in conference and 11-6 overall.
