Westmont Men Use Late Run to Pull Away From Menlo

Zac Jervis continuned his strong play for the Westmont men's basketball team, scoring 23 points in a 83-74 win at Menlo in a GSAC game.

“It was a good team win, especially with the different lineup that we had out there," coach John Moore said. "I was real impressed with how tough minded our guys were, especially with the guys who haven’t played a lot of minutes. Matt Ramon did some superb things for us.”

Westmont played without two of their key pieces in Olisa Nwachie and Kyle Scalmanini.

"We decided to hold them both out as a coaches’ decision,” said Moore.

In the second half, Menlo went up by as many as eight points on three separate occasions. With 8:22 left the score was 68-60 in favor of the Oaks. Westmont began to chip away and tightened up on defense.

“When it counted most, our guys got in their stance and played Warrior defense,” said Moore.

Westmont was able to tie the game after a made free throw from Jervis, a 3-pointer from Sean Harmon, and two made free throws from both David Gunn and Jerry Karczewski. This brought the score to 68-68 with 6:18 remaining. Harmon, Gunn, and Karczewski all finished 17 points.

Westmont finished the game on a 23-6 run.

The Warriors out rebounded the Oaks 32-27. Ten of those rebounds were offensive boards for Westmont – Jervis pulled down five. Gunn finished with nine rebounds.

The Warriors remain in second place in the GSAC standing trailing only The Master’s.

Westmont finishes their road trip Saturday against William Jessup.

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!
