One year after a season that no one on the men’s basketball team wants to repeat, it is up to head coach Dave Homquist’s squad to change the narrative and start the new season strong. The Eagles are off to a 2-1 start, and so far, senior forward Alex Talma has been the one leading the charge.

The New Zealand native has recorded a double-double in all three of Biola’s games this year, showing the type of consistency Holmquist needs on his team.

In the Eagles’ first game of the season, Talma helped his team to a 64-58 victory over California State University San Marcos with 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Despite taking a loss in their second game against California State University Los Angeles, Talma proved to be a bright spot, leading Biola with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

On Tuesday against West Coast Baptist University, Talma recorded his best game of the season, dominating on both sides of the ball with 24 points and 11 rebounds to help the Eagles take a 99-68 win.

For his consistent contribution in both scoring and rebounding, Alex Talma returns as our our Chimes Athlete of the Week.
