Men’s basketball played their last home game on Friday afternoon in their third of four scheduled games against Concordia University Irvine. Biola has beaten the Golden Eagles every game of the season, and by considerable numbers. Last night was no different, as the Eagles ended their final home game of the season, 82-65.

Junior guard Whitten Dominguez led the way for Biola, earning 21 points on eight of 11 shooting and throwing five assists. Freshman forward Maximo Milovich recorded nearly the same offensive stats. He tallied 19 points on eight of 10 shooting with four rebounds on the side. Junior guard Alex Wright contributed 17 points and seven rebounds for a solid all-around defensive and offensive game. Senior guard Michael Bagatourian also earned 12 points in the Eagles’ fashionable win.


It was a quick start to the game for Biola. They came out and gained a 9-0 lead and never allowed for CUI to top them the rest of the game. The Eagles shot an impressive 55% from the field, nearly 44% from behind the arc and 100% from the line. Their solid shooting gave them the edge needed to defeat Concordia yet again, 82-65.

The Eagles have two games left to win and bring head coach Dave Holmquist to record 1,000 career wins. The odds are looking good that Holmquist will reach that historic number by the end of the season and ultimately lead his team into the playoffs.

Biola (7-3) will head to Irvine, Calif. today to finish out their fourth and final game against Concordia University Irvine at 4:30 p.m. Livestreaming of the game can be found on the Biola Athletics webpage.
