The glimmer of hope the Cal State Northridge women's basketball team thought it saw during a close loss to Cal Poly Pomona two months ago turned out to be the headlight of an oncoming train.
Top-ranked Pomona flattened Northridge, 82-55, Saturday for its 14th straight win. The Broncos are 3-0 in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. and 16-1 overall.
Pomona has won 27 consecutive conference games and 42 straight against Division II competition. Pomona's only loss this season was to Pepperdine, 62-59, in November.
The Broncos certainly appeared worthy of their ranking against Northridge this time after struggling a little in a 66-52 tournament win over the Lady Matadors two months ago.
