FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) -Josh Akognon scored 24 of his career-high 31 points in the second half to lead Cal State Fullerton to an 87-67 rout of Cal State Los Angeles on Sunday.
Akognon scored 15 consecutive points in a span of 2:57 during the second half and made 11 of 18 shots, including seven of 13 from 3-point range.
Frank Robinson added 12 points, nine rebounds and two blocks for the Titans (2-0).
Christofer Hart had 23 points and Demetrius Hazel added 19 points for the Golden Eagles. The Division II team considered the game an exhibition and the result will not count toward its record.
