NORTHRIDGE, Calif. -- Kevin Foster scored all 22 of his points in the second half Wednesday night as Santa Clara defeated Cal State Northridge 99-79 in a rare matchup between the two California schools.
Foster, who played only seven minutes in the first half due to foul trouble, was 9 for 12 from the field. Evan Roquemore added 16 points for the Broncos (7-6), Raymond Cowels III had 13, Marc Trasolini 12 and Chris Cunningham and Ben Dowdell 10 each.
It was only the second meeting between the two schools, and the first since 1979 when Santa Clara won 83-70.
Northridge kept it close in the first half, trailing 39-36 at the break, and was still within 45-44 with 17:14 left in the game. But a basket by Foster started an 11-0 run for Santa Clara, which kept the lead in double digits the rest of the way.
