Bechler Leads Warriors to GSAC Win

November 30th, 2004

Kyle Bechler recorded 35 points in the Warriors 89-66 conference victory over the Royals of Hope International (1-3, 0-1). Bechler converted 12 of 15 field goals including 8 of 11 three-point shots.

Martin recorded eight three-point goals twice in the 1995-96 season. Martin also holds the record with ten against Western Washington in the 1994-95 season.

The Warriors (4-1, 1-0) fell behind early as the Royals’ Jared Lloyd (13 points) sank a three to start the scoring and Rodrigo Clement (10 points) added two free-throws to give Hope International a 5-1 lead. Santiago Aguirre gave the Warriors a temporary lead (8-7) with a layup at the 14:28 mark, but the Royals again pulled away on a three pointer by Greg Gusiff and a bucket by Clement. With the score 8-12 in favor of the Royals, Bechler hit the first of six three-point shots in the first half to pull within one. Two more three-point goals and the score was even at 17. The Warriors never looked back, taking a 42-30 lead at halftime on a three-point buzzer beater by Bechler on an inbound pass from under the basket by Matt Burkholder. Burkholder recorded 15 points, six assists and five rebounds on the night.
