Rasp Scores 15 in Warriors Loss

Azusa Pacific proves too much to handle in 71-53 GSAC victory.

Westmont freshman forward Dan Rasp scored 15 points and pulled down seven rebounds, but the Warriors  suffered a 71-53 loss at No. 8 Azusa Pacific on Tuesday. Westmont shot just 33.9 percent from the floor (19 of 56) and 18.2 percent from beyond the arc (four of 22).

The Warriors (2-2, 0-2) kept it close in the first half, trailing by just four points (27-23) with two minutes remaining. But Azusa Pacific (5-3, 0-2) began pulling away early in the second half and by the midway point had produced an 18-point advantage (51-33). Westmont scored nine of the next 11 points to cut the deficit to 53-42 with just less than eight minutes to play, but that was as close as the Warriors would get.


Sophomore forward Bobby Fenske, who made two of five attempts from three-point range, added eight points to the Warriors’ total. Fenske also collected six rebounds. Junior guard Tyler Dutton scored seven points while fellow junior guard Nasa Sete scored six points and had three assists and three rebounds.

Azusa Pacific was led by David Burgess, who had 16 points and 11 rebounds. Todd Martin produced 13 points for the Cougars.
In other Golden State Athletic Conference  games, No. 2 Concordia won at San Diego Christian, 102-69, while Hope International defeated visiting Biola, 59-55. The Master’s secured a 66-61 victory at Fresno Pacific and California Baptist won at home against Vanguard, 84-73.

Westmont will be back in action Saturday when the Warriors host San Diego Christian (2-4, 0-2) at Murchison Gymnasium. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
