Westmont Men Hold Off Hope International

Sean McDonnell and Sam Bentz combined for 21 points off the bench, and Sean Harman made a pair of clutch free throws down the stretch to hold off Hope International, 67-64, in a Golden State Athletic Conference men's basketball game on Saturday at Murchison Gym.

The Warriors made 20-of-24 free throws in the game. Harmon hit the last two in the final seconds after Hope made a three-pointer to cut its deficit to 65-64.

Hayden Anderson led Westmont with 11 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Bentz had 11 points and McDonnell scored 10 off the bench.

Hope point guard Donny Punter scored 14 points and center Liam Hunt had a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

The win makes Westmont 2-0 in GSAC play and 10-1 overall. Hope, suffering, its first loss of the season, is 6-1 and 0-1.

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!
