Stephen Maxwell, Josh Greene Score 28 Each in Cal State Northridge Victory

College Hoops Player of the Day for Friday, December 27, 2013

The Matadors of Cal State Northridge employed the inside power of Stephen Maxwell and the outside sharp-shooting of Josh Greene to fend off the invaders from Morgan State, improving to 7-1 at home with an 86-80 triumph.

Both players scored a game-high 28 points, but went at it with entirely difference approaches. Maxwell, a 6'7' junior, made 11 of 16 shots from close range and was 6-for-10 from the foul line for his scoring, adding 12 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the year, breaking his personal best in scoring by one point.

Greene, a senior guard, did his damage from the perimeter, knocking down five of six from three-point range, going 8-for-10 overall and nailing seven of eight from the foul line. Greene's deft touch was augmented by his solid all-around play, with five rebounds, four assists and three steals. His scoring was a season high. Last season he set a personal best with 37 points in a win over Hawaii.

Out of the Big West, the Matadors are 8-5 in non-conference games. They begin conference play January 9th when they host Cal State Davis.
