Instead of raiding clearance buckets at a megastore, Westmont Men’s Basketball (3-2) spent their Black Friday draining baskets as part of the Lamont Ramsey Classic in Atherton, hosted by Menlo College.
From the get go, no tryptophan lull seemed to slow the Warriors. Overall, Westmont shot 64 percent (28 of 44) from the field, including 57 percent (4 of 7) from three-point land, as the team pulled away in the second half to secure a 80-59 victory over the Oaks of Menlo (2-5, 1-0).
Senior forward C.J. Miller (20 points on 9 of 12 shooting, 4 rebounds) was particularly fiery, scoring 10 of the Warriors’ initial 12 points to open the game. Junior center Daniel Carlin (8 points, 9 rebounds) manhandled the glass early, recording five rebounds in the first 10 minutes of play.
