Recap: CS-Northridge vs. Long Beach State

Northridge, CA (Sports Network) - James Ennis tallied 21 points and 10 rebounds as the Long Beach State 49ers used a second-half comeback to take down the Cal State Northridge Matadors, 83-80, in a Big West Conference showdown at The Matadome.

Mike Caffey scored 22 points and dished out five assists for LBSU (14-9, 10-2 Big West), which bounced back from a Thursday night loss at Hawaii. Peter Pappageorge shot 5-of-10 from 3-point range for 15 points off the bench, while Dan Jennings added 11 points and seven boards for the visitors.

For CSUN (13-12, 4-9), Stephen Maxwell recorded 20 points and eight rebounds, and Josh Greene netted 12 points. Trevone Williams (12 points, seven rebounds) Donovan Johnson (11 points), and Landon Drew (10 points, five assists) all had strong efforts off the bench for the Matadors, who had won their previous three contests.

CSUN shot just 39.4 percent from the field in the first half, but LBSU was even worse at 35.7 percent. The Matadors closed out the frame on a 13-0 run to go into intermission with a 39-28 lead.

The 49ers came out firing in the second half, ripping off a 14-2 spurt to take a 42-41 advantage with 17:09 to play. The teams exchanged several leads down the stretch, and with the game tied 75-75 with under a minute remaining, Caffey drilled what proved to be the game-winning 3-pointer for LBSU, and it went 5-of-6 from the foul line the rest of the way to hold on.
