Long-range fireworks light up Warrior court for homecoming

The homecoming basketball game last Friday was a night full of loud chants, body paint and solid long range shooting that led the Warrior men’s basketball team to a 72-57 victory over the UCSD Tritons.
It was the hot three point hand that helped the Warriors (9-13, 6-12 CCAA) rally over the Tritons last Friday with the team draining 12 shots from behind the arch.
The game came as a much needed victory for the struggling Warriors who ended a 5 game losing spell with last Friday night’s victory.
Junior guard, Taylor Bell led the Warriors on the scoreboard, with 16 points shooting 5 for 12 from the field, and 3 for the 7 from behind the 3 point line. Bell’s hot hand helped him to one of his strongest scoring performances of the season who comparatively has only shot an average of 5.6 points in the regular season.
The other members of the long range arsenal for the Warriors were starting forward Ray Mitchell and Junior guard Marcellus Pullum, who both shot 75 % from downtown.
Overall, the Warriors shot over 60 % from the field, a noticeable difference from the 44 % average in comparison to the rest of the season.
The game itself was a toggle match between the two CCAA teams with marginal point differences throughout the duration of the game. For the first period of the game, the Tritons took the lead 7 times, but all under 5 point margins.
However, the second period of the game was a much different picture, with the Warriors extending their lead margin over double digits and maintaining until the end of the game to bring home the win.
The three point fireworks show was the strongest long range performance since their game against UC Merced (105-57) back in November.
After the conclusion of the game, Associated Students Inc. announced the winners of the campus homecoming competition, but it was the basketball team, that truly took home the crown.
