San Fran. put the finishing touches on their ninth blowout victory of the season on Saturday. Everything went their way against the Waves as the Dons made off with a 92-68 win. Winning is a bit easier when you work as a team to rack up 12 more assists than your opponent, as San Fran. did.

San Fran.'s win was a true team effort, with many players turning in solid performances. Perhaps the best among them was Ndewedo Newbury, who scored 19 points along with five rebounds. Newbury didn't help San Fran.'s cause all that much against the Gaels last Tuesday but the same can't be said for this match. The team also got some help courtesy of Mike Sharavjamts, who scored 12 points along with two steals.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs beat the Broncos 94-81 on Saturday.
