Men’s basketball traveled to Cal State University, Los Angeles on Saturday, Nov. 9 looking for a win after a tough loss to Cal State University, San Marcos just yesterday. The Eagles were unable to put together an offense that topped the Golden Eagles. CSULA led the entire game, with the largest lead being 21 points late during the second half. The results reflected the energy given by each team: Cal State LA, 78, Biola, 69.

The first half was a struggle for the Eagles and they went into the half down 11 points. However, the Eagles went on a 24-4 run against CSULA in the second half, cutting the lead to just one point. Yet, the spark ignited in BU was put out by the Golden Eagles’ defense. Biola went 0-8 shooting after their explosive run, choking late once again and handing over the victory.


It was another big night for senior guard Marquise Mosley, who racked up 22 points, four assists and three rebounds. Junior guard Michael Bagatourian IM stayed consistent with his numbers, putting up 19 points, six rebounds and two assists for BU. Junior forward Jesse Elrod stepped up for the Eagles, earning 12 points on 5-8 shooting, three rebounds and two assists.
