ROUNDUP : Ulloa’s 24 Points Plenty for Cal Lutheran

Dave Ulloa scored 24 points, including a pair of three-point baskets, to lead Cal Lutheran to a 77-60 nonconference men’s basketball victory over Christian Heritage on Tuesday night at Thousand Oaks.

Ulloa, a 1992 graduate of Hoover High, scored a basket and made a three-point basket to highlight an 8-0 run that snapped a 30-30 tie late in the first half. Cal Lutheran (2-1) never trailed again.

Ulloa made 10 of 18 shots, including two of four from three-point range.

Mark Herrema added 10 points for the Kingsmen.


Dave Piester scored 20 points for Christian Heritage (1-2). Beau Sager added 14 points.

Cal State Northridge 99, High Five America 83--Ruben Oronoz scored 21 points for the Matadors in an exhibition game at Northridge.

Northridge, which opens its regular season on Saturday at Nevada Las Vegas, played better than it did in a victory over less-challenging United Arab Emirates team Friday night.

Two of the best performances came from Oronoz, who missed several practices in the past week because of flu, and point guard Trenton Cross, who missed the first few weeks of camp because of injuries from a car accident 3 1/2 months ago. Cross ran the offense well and had five assists.

The Matadors also got 18 points from Gerald Rhoden, who didn’t figure to be in Northridge’s rotation but may be earning himself playing time.

High Five America, a team of former college players, began the game with only six players in uniform because others were stuck in traffic. The team had 10 when the game ended.
