Westmont Shoots 60 Percent, Routs Occidental

Six players scored in double figures, and Westmont hit a blazing 61 percent from the floor in routing Occidental, 82-69, in a nonconference men's basketball game on Thursday in Los Angeles.

Hayden Anderson and Jerry Karczewski each scored 14 points, Cory Blau and Sam Bentz added another 13 points while Sean Harman and Cory Blau contributed 12 points apiece as the Warriors improved to 4-0
The Warriors shot 61.2 percent from the floor (30 of 49), including 64.3 percent from three-point range (9 of 14). Defensively, Westmont held Occidental to just 20.0 percent from beyond the arc (2 of 10).
"We did a really nice job defending their top scorers who combined for 36 points in their last outing," noted head coach John Moore. "We held them to just 17 points. Jay Miller scored 24 in their first game and we held him to five."

Next up for the Warriors is a date with an old nemesis. Westmont will travel to Irvine to take on the Eagles of Concordia on Tuesday, Nov. 22.

"Concordia is outstanding and there is a great rivalry between us," said Moore. "I think they play a great brand of basketball. It will be great for us to be on the road against them and I am looking forward to seeing how we hold up."

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!
