Tonight the Westmont men’s basketball team took on their third Division II opponent of the season. While they played Cal State Dominguez Hills point-for point the entire game, a couple of missed opportunities down the stretch led to an eventual 73-65 loss this evening.
“I think we played a nice game for a good portion of the time, we just couldn’t close the door. We had a few six and eight point leads, but I think our inexperience came back to haunt us. We had a couple of missed free throws and layups” opened head coach John Moore.
In one of the most high energy games so far this season, the Warriors remained neck and neck with the Toros the entire time. The competitive nature of the game was directly reflected in the similarity of the statistics. The Warriors made 24 of their 54 total shots this evening, while the Toros made 26 of their 54 total shots. Westmont was 7-18 from the three-point line, while Dominguez Hills was 6-18. Most of the game was played within a two to four point margin.
