Before a crowd of 2,819 at the Felix Event Center the Azusa Pacific Cougars snapped Cal Baptist’s 16 game winning streak with a 78-65 win on Friday night.
The Cougars were led by Troy Leaf’s 21 points, teammates Robert Sandoval and Sharif Watson added 18 and 13 points, respectively. Leaf was five for five from three point land, and his team was 10 of 16 overall from beyond the arc.
Cal Baptist was undefeated coming in but it was APU that jumped to a 16 point lead by halftime. CB got as close as six in the second half but the Cougars withstood the run making big plays down the stretch.
APU improved to 10-6 overall and 6-4 in the conference while the Baptists fell to 16-1 and 10-1. The Cougars will now fly to Hawaii before returning home February 13.
