FULLERTON — DJ Brewton and Tory San Antonio scored 20 points apiece to lead Cal State Fullerton to a 68-50 victory over Cal Poly on Thursday night at Titan Gym, ending the Titans’ five-game losing streak.

“I thought our group came out focused tonight,” Fullerton coach Dedrique Taylor said. “We set the tone the way we played defense. We guarded well, we rebounded and were able to get out and score in transition.”

Brewton shot 9 for 14 from the field to go with four rebounds, four assists and a pair of steals, while San Antonio shot 7 for 15, making a career-high five 3-pointers, to go with six rebounds. Antwan Robinson added 10 points and seven rebounds for Fullerton (12-15 overall, 5-10 Big West).

The Titans shot 40.3% from the floor and went 12 for 27 from 3-point range (44.4%) while holding the Mustangs (4-23, 0-15) to 34.7% shooting. Fullerton scored 14 points off of 14 Cal Poly turnovers and outscored the Mustangs 31-5 in bench points.

The Titans held a four-point lead before Grayson Carper hit a pair of 3-pointers, including one following an emphatic John Mikey Square blocked shot, to kickstart an 11-3 Fullerton run to close the first half. Zachary Visentin completed a three-point play and Brewton added a jumper as the Titans took a 31-19 lead into the locker room.

Fullerton continued to cruise in the second half, with San Antonio hitting a 3-pointer while being fouled and Brewton scoring from the baseline to extend the lead to 43-24. Brewton later converted a driving layup before San Antonio added another 3-pointer off a Square assist. Square then stole a Cal Poly pass and raced up the court for a one-handed dunk while being fouled, giving Fullerton a 53-38 lead.
