UC Irvine wins 6th straight, beats Cal State Fullerton 60-53
IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — Max Hazzard scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half to help UC Irvine pull away and beat Cal State Fullerton 60-53 on Wednesday night for its sixth straight win.
It is the earliest an Anteaters (20-5, 8-1 Big West Conference) squad has reached the 20-win mark. It's the best start in coach Russell Turner's nine seasons, and the best since the 2000-01 team opened 21-3.
Hazzard was 4 of 8 from 3-point range. Jonathan Galloway added 14 points and 11 rebounds for UC Irvine.
Travis DeCuire isn't going anywhere.
Montana's head men's basketball coach, who was connected to the vacant coaching position at Cal this week, has removed his name from consideration for the job and will return to the Griz for a fourth season.
As multiple media outlets began reporting the change Wednesday afternoon, DeCuire took to the social media website Twitter to confirm his allegiances.
"It's another great day to be a GRIZ!!" DeCuire posted. "#UNFINISHED BUSINESS"
Montana men's head basketball coach Travis DeCuire will interview for the same position at California, according to media reports Monday.
The only game he played was basketball. He didn't pose, he didn't sell, he didn't market, he didn't tweet, he didn't post (except in the lane), he didn't "brand."
He played like nobody was watching and sometimes it seemed nobody was, except for the five times he would surface in June with a championship net. The world surrounded Tim Duncan but he kept it offshore, through 19 professional years and five NBA championships.
