This past weekend the men’s basketball team was on the road, facing Lewis and Clark and Linfield.
Against Lewis and Clark, the Loggers suffered a loss 72-78 after a slow start proved to be fatal. While this loss was devastating, it only momentarily dropped them into third place in conference, as Whitman’s win over Willamette pushed them to second place.
Kaleb Shelton-Johnson led the Loggers in scoring, with 15 points to add to his list. Anthony Gittens, Ryan Rogers, Rex Holmes and Edric Egberaure each scored 9 points.
The game against Linfield was crucial in securing a tie for the number-two spot in the NWC. The Loggers took the game 80-67, which tied them with Whitman for second place.
Rex Homes had a season high scoring of 23 points, with Riggs Yarbro adding 12 and Shelton Johnson scoring 14.
The Linfield game was also a milestone for head coach Justin Lunt becuase it was his 100th winning game as the Loggers’ head coach. This is his sixth season as head coach.
