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.
