Royals Edge Warriors

“It was a great college basketball game,” said Warrior head coach John Moore after #16 Westmont Men’s Basketball (17-6, 6-4 GSAC0 loss to #8 Hope International (20-4, 8-2) by a score of 61-60 in Saturday night’s Golden State Athletic Conference game at Murchison Gymnasium. “It just ended two points shy for the Warriors.”

Each of the last three games played between these two teams have been decided by two points or less. In last year’s NAIA National Championships semifinal match-up, Cory Blau hit a jumper with 10 seconds remaining to give Westmont a 70-69 win. In December, Hope International’s Dominique Lanier scored on a jumper in the paint with six seconds remaining to give the Royals a 66-64. Tonight’s game saw a potential buzzer beater bounce off the rim to preserve the narrow victory for Hope International.

“I really liked our defense in the second half,” reflected Moore. “Any time you hold a team to 18 points in the second half after giving up 43 in the first half, you are doing something right. We fought the way you want your team to fight.

“Sean Harman did a lot of things defensively. Some of them show up in the box score and some of them don’t. He was impressive. Cory rebounded well for us on the defensive boards. OlIsa played well in the first half and did some really nice things.”

Sean Harman tallied a career high 27-points – 24 in the first half – to lead #16 Westmont Men’s Basketball (17-5, 6-3 GSAC) to a 106-83 Golden State Athletic Conference win over the Mustangs of The Master’s College (4-14, 1-9). Harman made 10 of 12 from the floor including six of seven from beyond the arc.

“Sean and I had a good meeting earlier in the week. The way things were going, we didn’t know if Cory (Blau) was going to be available tonight,” explained Westmont head coach John Moore. “And with Hayden Anderson out, Sean was going to have to take on more of the scoring load. He is capable.”

Blau was questionable up until game time because of an injury experienced during the Vanguard game.

“Sean is a lot like Cory in terms of his confidence and his competitiveness. He is sometimes just a little too careful. I don’t want him to be careful. – I want him to be assertive.”

Warriors Move Game Inside

Westmont Men’s Basketball (16-5, 5-3 GSAC) went big when they needed to and it paid off with a 94-88 Golden State Athletic Conference victory over San Diego Christian (9-9, 2-6). Without the services of the NAIA’s top two three-point shooter – Cory Blau and Hayden Anderson – Westmont looked to accentuate its inside game and did so to the tune of 60 points in the paint.

“Sean McDonnell and Olisa Nwachie shot a combined 80 percent (16 of 20),” noted Westmont head coach John Moore. “Our big guys took advantage of the inside and made their free throws too. Olisa had his best game as a Warrior and is coming into his own. We needed both of them to play up to the level they must with Cory Blau and Hayden Anderson out of the lineup today.”

McDonnell finished the game with 23 points on 10 of 13 shooting while Nwachie made six of seven shots on his way 16 points and four assists.

The game was tightly contested throughout with 16 ties and 14 lead changes.

Westmont Men’s Basketball (15-5, 4-3 GSAC) fought its way back from a 17-point second half deficit, but the 15th ranked Warriors couldn’t hold on in Costa Mesa and suffered a 73-69 Golden State Athletic Conference loss to the Lions of Vanguard (13-6, 2-5).

The Warriors found shooting in The Pit a challenge in the first half, making just 38.5 percent of their field goal attempts. Vanguard took advantage by shooting 46.9 percent, including 51.1 percent from three-point range, to claim an 11-point halftime lead (38-27).

Cory Blau led the Warriors with 23 points, five rebounds and four assists.

“Cory played great, especially in the second half when he put us on his back and carried us,” said Westmont head coach Johns Moore. “I was so proud of our guys for battling hard in the second half. I thought we were going to win the game when we took the lead. I thought we scrapped and played the game with a lot of Warrior pride.”

Less than two minutes into the second half, Malachi Hoosein (nine points, five assists) struck from beyond the arc to give Vanguard a 17-point advantage (46-29), the Lions’ largest margin of the night. Five minutes into the second half, Vanguard still had a 17-point lead (51-34), when the Warriors began to rally.

Warriors Win Nail Biter in Murchison

A 13-0 second half run proved to be just what #15 Westmont Men’s Basketball (15-4, 4-2 GSAC) needed to defeated the up-and-coming Warriors of William Jessup (13-6, 5-3) on Saturday night in Murchison Gymnasium. The Westmont Warriors prevailed by a score of 80-76 in the Golden State Athletic Conference affair.

“It was a defense and rebounding win,” said Westmont head coach John Moore. “William Jessup is an outstanding team. They are athletic, they are big, they are tough, they are hardworking and they are well coached.

“That was a good GSAC win for us against a team that I wasn’t sure we could outrebound. They are top five in the country in rebounding – outrebounding their opponents by almost 12 a game. That says a lot about the toughness of our guys.”

Westmont claimed 38 boards to Jessup’s 31. Sean McDonnell and Samuel Bentz each had six while Cory Blau and Hayden Anderson tallied five apiece.

Late Rally Rescues Warriors

Westmont Men’s Basketball (14-4, 3-2 GSAC), ranked at number 15 in the NAIA, rallied from an eight-point, second half deficit on Thursday night to defeat the visiting Oaks of Menlo (7-13, 1-6) by a score of 75-65 in a Golden State Athletic Conference match-up.

“I thought they outplayed us for a good part of the game,” said Westmont head coach John Moore. “With that said, I really liked the way we finished the game. We executed well late.

“We can’t afford to play as though one team is more important than the next,” continued the coach. “I thought we played as if we didn’t have to mentally prepare for this team. It is a complacency that comes after a win of substance like we had Thursday. Even when we came out to warm up, I thought Menlo was business like and we were a little too casual.”

Sean McDonnell led the Warriors in both scoring and rebounding, recording a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds. The junior forward also produced five steals. Cory Blau added 16 points and three assists while Sean Harman and Jerry Karczewski each contributed nine points.

Warriors Contain Hot-shooting Firestorm

When your opponent shoots better than 60 percent from the floor while your team is held to under 48 percent, you might not expect to win. However, that is exactly what #16 Westmont (13-4, 2-2 GSAC) in upsetting #7 Arizona Christian (14-3, 2-2 GSAC) in Thursday night’s Golden State Athletic Conference 85-75 win.

“It was a great team win,” said Westmont head coach John Moore of his team’s triumph. “I thought we got fantastic play out of a number of different players. Even the guys who played short minutes – like Jonathan Harrell, Noah Blanton and David Gunn – gave us significant pieces that we need during the time that they played.”

So how did the Warriors overcome a team that made four more field goals (33-29)? The answer starts with possessions. Westmont outrebounded Arizona Christian 31-29, including holding a 14-6 advantage on the offensive glass, resulting in eight additional possessions.

The Warriors gained another five possessions by taking care of the ball and committing fewer turnovers (12) than did their opponent (17). As a result, Westmont recorded 23 points off of turnovers compared to 17 by Arizona Christian.

Eagles Fly by Warriors in Second Half

A 28-4 run to start the second half was the Warriors’ undoing as #20 Biola (16-1, 3-0 GSAC) defeated #12 Westmont Men’s Basketball (12-4, 1-2) in a Golden State Athletic Conference 72-51 win in Chase Gymnasium on Tuesday night. The Warriors led by four at the half (29-25), but could not contain the Eagles in the first eight and one-half minutes of the final frame.

Biola, which boasts the best defense in the NAIA by virtue of fewest points allowed (59.6), held the Warriors to just 34.0 percent from the floor (18 of 53) and, perhaps more telling, just 16.0 percent from three-point range (4 of 25). Westmont, which entered the game as the NAIA’s second best three-point shooting team (45.6 percent), missed all 11 of its three-point attempts in the second half.

No Warrior scored in double figures.

The Eagles were led in scoring and rebounding by guard Terrell Funches who tallied 20 points and nine boards. Forward Jeff Gonzales added 13 points and eight rebounds while guard Dakari Archer produced 12 points and five rebounds. Forward Steve Herve notched 10 points and seven boards.
