The men’s basketball team started off the New Year with a bang, jumping all over the visiting Urban Knights from the Academy of Art with an 11-0 run.
The scoring barrage in the first half was lead by Pablo Coro who netted 4 straight three pointers that had the Seasider’s up 23-6 with only 6 minutes into the first half. Pablo finished the game with 17 points, shooting 5-6 from beyond the arch.
Olivia Warren, a junior in elementary education from Virginia said, “If this game keeps going like this, we are for sure getting ice-cream!”
The men kept pouring it on the visitors, going up 31-8 with a spectacular steal and alley-oop from Robbie Mitchell to SeQuan Lawrence, and the entire audience on their feet cheering.
“My favorite parts of the game tonight were the alley-oop to SeQuan and the mint chocolate chip ice-cream,” said Brooke Lainhart, a junior from Idaho studying EXS.
The men’s team kept the momentum going in the second half, going up by over 40 points. The game ended as lopsided as it began with a 107–70 victory.
“Ice-cream” was being shouted in the final minutes and the cheering home crowd was rewarded with ice cream outside the Cannon Activity Center. A home victory Monday night is hopefully an omen for success in the New Year for the men’s basketball team.
The next home game is Feb. 2 vs. Chaminade.
