NORTHRIDGE, Calif. — Their press wasn’t all that effective. Their passing wasn’t very good. And all that new size on the roster? Yeah, that didn’t keep the Lobos from getting dominated on the offensive boards as they often did a season ago.
But they still have Anthony Mathis.
The senior came up big when it counted most, banking in a 3-pointer with one second remaining in the game to edge a winded Cal State-Northridge team 87-84 on Tuesday night in front of an announced season-opening crowd of 1,896 in the cozy Matadome.
