In their junior season, it looks like the Leaupepe twins are coming into their own. On Thursday night, Dynn Leaupepe scored 29 points, grabbed eight rebounds, and dished five assists. Not to be outdone, Lynn scored 26 points of her own to go with nine rebounds and two assists in Cal Poly’s 78-67 win over Blue-Green rival UCSB.

Hannah Gilbert played a great defensive game, fronting UCSB’s big post players all night while tallying 13 points and seven rebounds. Forward Amanda Lovely also had a monster game with 8 points and 12 rebounds.

Cal Poly was down 35-29 at halftime, but outscored the Gauchos 49-32 in the second half to pull away. Coco Miller went 7-13 from three-point range for UCSB to pace them with 23 points. Onome Jemerigbe used her quickness to get to the rim and score 17, but Cal Poly’s game-plan of laying off a number of Gaucho guards and sag and help on UCSB’s bigs really paid-off as the game wore-on.

Cal Poly will host CSUN on Saturday night at Mott Athletics Center at 4:00pm.
