When Biola’s men’s basketball team took on Azusa Pacific University for the first time this season, they were blown out in brutal fashion at Chase Gymnasium. Senior guard Alex Talma struggled mightily in that game, but he bounced back strong in the second meeting with the Cougars.

Although they lost yet again at APU’s Felix Event Center this past Saturday, Talma kept the Eagles within striking distance throughout the second half of the 12-point loss.

Biola took another tough loss to the Cougars, but the final score of 84-72 was much closer than the two teams’ first meeting thanks to Talma. The New Zealand native dropped a team-high 19 points, and snagged another team high eight rebounds.

For keeping the Eagles within striking distance throughout the game, and leading his team offensively, Alex Talma is once again our Chimes Athlete of the Week.
