RIVERSIDE --- After a four-game, eight-day road trip to Hawaii, all California Baptist University needed was a little home cooking to snap a season-long three game skid.

Luke Evans scored a game-high 19 points, and Ivan Patterson added 16 points for the third straight game as the Lancers led wire-to-wire in a 78-54 win over Point Loma Thursday night in the Lancers' final home game of the season.

The Lancers, who are now 11-3 at home this year, improve to 14-10 overall, 8-8 PacWest with the win. The Sea Lions fall to 5-19, 2-14.

Evans was 9 for 11 from the floor and also grabbed four rebounds. Patterson had eight points in each half.

"It was special night," said Evans, who was honored pregame along with Micah Sherman and Andrew Fisk on Senior Night. "I was thinking before the game I just wanted to play hard. We always get great fan support, so it's good to come out and reward them with a win. It's been fun playing in this gym."

Fisk finished with 12 points, and Kevin Crabb came off the bench to score nine points and grab five rebounds.

Anthony Cosentino started it off with a 3-pointer, and Fisk completed a game-opening 15-4 run with a slam dunk. The Lancers never led by less than seven points and led 26-15 with 5:38 left in the half before closing the half with a 13-6 run to lead 39-21 at halftime.

The lead ballooned to as many as 31 when the Lancers took a 69-38 lead on a pair of free throws by Sherman with 6:29 remaining.

All the dirty work was done in the first half, though, as the Lancers held the Sea Lions to just seven made field goals in the first half, just two in the final nine minutes of the half.

Evans dominated inside in the first half as the Lancers outscored the Sea Lions 20-6 in the paint. Fourteen of Evans' 15 first half points came in the paint. With 1,286 career points, Evans now needs 27 points in his final two games to move into the top 10 of the Lancers' career scoring chart.
