Building off last night's impressive win over New Hope Christian, the Cal Maritime men's basketball team broke a school scoring record in knocking off Multnomah University 104-85 on Saturday night. The offensive outburst was led by outstanding three point shooting, which saw Keelhaulers make 15 shots from long distance. Junior guard Justin Eisen knocked down 6 three pointers finishing with a team high 26 points. He was joined in double figures by senior Daniel Radford (21 points) and fellow junior Phil Randles (18 points). Cal Maritime shot an impressive 59% overall from the field.
Multnomah, members of the perennially strong Cascade Conference, had a very balanced attack with six players in double figures. Ben Grandle led the Lions' attacking finishing with 14 points. Multnomah continued the overall theme of impressive perimeter shooting making 11 three pointers.
Cal Maritime's victory also put a cap on a busy weekend of basketball at the Markie Cosca Memorial. Head Coach Bryan Rooney commented on the meaning of the tournament after the game, "This weekend was about much more than basketball. Markie Cosca was an extremely special person and while we miss him dearly, his positive spirit lives on through all of us. We sincerely appreciate Multnomah, Menlo and New Hope in joining us to honor Markie's memory."
With the win, Cal Maritime moves to 3-2 on the year and hits the road next week traveling to take on Menlo College next Saturday. Tip off in Atherton is set for 6pm.
