Being undersized finally caught up with Cal State Dominguez Hills on Saturday night, as the Toros fell to first-place Cal State Bakersfield, 63-53, in a California Collegiate Athletic Assn. basketball game at Dominguez Hills.
The game was a big one for the Toros (10-12, 4-6), who had knocked Cal Poly San Luis Obispo out of undisputed first place on Thursday night to get back into the conference playoff race.
Cal State Bakersfield (16-7, 8-2) did a good job of defending the Toros' leading scorer, center Anthony Blackmon, by rotating centers Fred Jones and Neil Stephens.
They held Blackmon, who came into the game with a 17-point scoring average, to 10 shots while each having one good scoring half of his own.
