Udun Osakue had 21 points, nine rebounds, five assists and five steals but the Gators (8-9, 6-7 California Collegiate Athletic Association) were unable to keep up with the Coyotes (7-9, 7-6).
SFSU doomed itself with a slow start as San Bernardino rolled to a 44-19 lead at halftime.
“We came out with a lack of energy defensively in the first half,” Gators coach Paul Trevor said. “Offensively, we could not make shots to start game.” We played harder in the second half, but dug ourselves too big of a hole to dig out of.”
