The Irvine Valley men's basketball team had four starters score in double figures in a convincing 82-61 Orange Empire Conference victory at Golden West on Friday night.

And one of those finished with his first triple-double as a Laser. Freshman JT Robinson led the way for IVC with 19 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists.

The victory halted a three-game slide for the Lasers in conference play.

Sophomore forward Austin Carter added 20 points and 11 rebounds, sophomore forward Aashad Womack contributed 15 points, eight rebounds and three blocks and sophomore guard Christian Louis had 14 points and five rebounds for Irvine Valley.

Irvine Valley out-rebounded Golden West, 54-30, in the contest. And the Lasers did a good job of sharing the ball, ending up with 24 assists on their 33 made baskets.

IVC also helped hold Golden West to just 33.3 percent (20 of 60) shooting from the field.

Irvine Valley led, 38-26, at the half and then out-scored Golden West, 44-35, in the second half.

And Robinson was at his best in the second half, helping the Lasers put the game away. He scored 14 of his 19 points in the final 20 minutes and had eight rebounds and six assists.

Irvine Valley led by as many as 23 points in the second half before winning by 21.

With the win, IVC improved its record to 14-8 overall and 4-6 in conference.

Irvine Valley plays again next Wednesday, hosting Santa Ana at 7 p.m.
