SANTA ANA, Calif. – The Santa Ana men's basketball team hosted the No. 2 ranked Fullerton Hornets in another Orange Empire Conference matchup on Friday night.
In their first game against each other, the Dons got off to a quick start and held the lead for the first four minutes. But the Hornets didn't let that happen again as they went on an 8-0 run to start the game on Friday night.
The Dons fought back to pull within three (10-7) a few minutes later but couldn't keep up with the tempo of the Hornets, falling 103-73 after 40 minutes of action.
BY THE NUMBERS
The combination of Fullerton's efficient shooting numbers (52.7 FG%/37.1 3P%/85.7 FT%) and the 50-35 mark on rebounding in the Hornets favor, led to the loss for the Dons.
Santa Ana will be on the road for the rest of the season starting with Cypress College on Tuesday, February 12th at 5:00 p.m.
