Biola’s men’s basketball squad landed in Hawaii looking to start strong in a series of road games this weekend. However, the Eagles were unable to rise above the Chaminade University Silverswords on Thursday night in Honolulu, falling 82-58.

Biola gave their best efforts against the No. 4 team in the PacWest conference. Senior forward Levi Auble held the high score for the Eagles with 18 points and five rebounds while senior forward Alex Talma contributed 12 points and five rebounds. Senior guard Trevor Treinen came up with 11 points of his own along with three assists.


The Eagles were only down 41-30 at the half, which was hopeful considering Chaminade shot 56.7 percent from the field while Biola only shot 31.0 percent. What began to hurt the Eagles the most was the Silverswords’ defense. Chaminade out-rebounded Biola 40 to 28, especially on the defensive end, where they found 32 of their 40 rebounds.

Biola trailed for most of the game and were down 26 late in the second half. Chaminade took control, racking up 52 points in the paint alone. The sharp shooting ‘Swords put up too much of a fight for the Eagles to handle. Despite the Eagles’ valiant efforts, it was Chaminade who walked away victorious.

The Eagles (10-9 Overall, 6-7 PacWest) look to turn things around on Feb. 2 at 5 p.m. against Hawai’i Pacific University.
