Westmont Men Fall at Hope International

Westmont's road trip to Fullerton ended in an 81-70 Golden State Athletic Conference loss at Hope International. 

NAIA fifth-ranked Westmont (17-4, 6-3 GSAC) held a 34-33 win at halftime, but was outscored 48-36 in the second half. The lead switched hands eight times and stayed within six points until Liam Hunt scored on a lay-up to make the score 67-60 with 2:13 remaining in the game.

A 3-point bucked by Cory Blau pulled the Warriors back within four points (67-63) with an even two minutes left on the clock, but the Royals (17-5, 6-2) made 12 of 13 free throws down the stretch to keep the Warriors at bay.

Blau led the Warriors in scoring with 20 points, making eight of 12 field goals including four of five from long distance.

Samuel Bentz added 16 points for Westmont on seven of 11 shooting from the floor and 2 of six from beyond the arc. Jerry Karczewski added 10 points and pulled down four rebounds.

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!
