Cal Poly falls short to DePaul

After a night full of pressure, Cal Poly comes up a little short and loses to DePaul 63-58. This might be the best opponent Cal Poly plays this year along with UNLV and both of those teams have a great chance of making the NCAA tournament, so this game shows Cal Poly can hang with the best of them.

The Mustangs were lead by the trio of David Hanson, Will Taylor and Amaurys Fermin, who all combined for 35 points for Cal Poly. The team out rebounded DePaul and also only had 8 turnovers while getting 12 assists on 23 made shots, but the Blue Demons at home shot 42% from the field and only committed 5 turnovers.

Cal Poly now gets a couple days of for Christmas and then play host to Hope International before opening Big West Conference play home against rival UCSB and then travels to take on pre-season conference favorite Long Beach State.

While in Chicago, Cal Poly was able to attend a Bulls preseason game. Former player of Head Coach Joe Callero, Brian Scalabrine is a member of the Chicago Bulls.

Dylan Royer #1 In The Nation

Junior walk-on Dylan Royer is now #1 in the nation in 3-point field goal percentage. he is on fire lately making seven in a row and 11-13 in his past three games. Royer on the season is 20-30 (.667%) on the year. Tyler Murray, a senior guard at Wagner is shooting 23-35 (63.9%) is the closest member of all Division I athletes, which has over 4,000.

Last time Royer and the Mustangs played the San Jose St Spartans, Royer only played 14 minutes, but sank both of his attempts outside the arc inside Mott Gym in a 79-52 win for Cal Poly. The game this weekend will be a revenge game for the Spartans, who are 3-1 at home (3-7 overall), but with a loss at Cal on Wednesday night, things aren’t bouncing there way this early in the season still.

Here are some of Dylan Royer’s highlights so far this year:

Cal Poly is Still Having a Great Year

After a 5-2 start to the season and best start in 10 years, the Cal Poly basketball team couldn’t extend their winning streak against the St. Mary’s Gaels, losing 59-54.

Now at 5-3, the Mustangs have a week to prepare for their game at San Jose St, who they beat by 27 to open the year in Mott, and then come back home to take on Menlo College. Some people might write off these teams but you can never count anyone out.

Cal Poly has five games during the break from school and the two big games are at Fresno St, who is 4-4 but undefeated at home, and at DePaul, who is 4-2 and in the Big East which is arguably the best conference in the nation for basketball.

The Mustangs have a great opportunity over this break, with no school to worry about, to bond even more after their summer trip to Costa Rica. But chemistry is just one thing the Mustangs want. They want to play hard as a team and see if they can win every game and have some momentum going into conference play.
