On Nov. 12 men’s basketball traveled to Irvine, California to face off against the California State University, Los Angeles Golden Eagles. The season opener saw the return of all five starters from the previous season who helped lead Biola to victory, 86-67.


Redshirt junior guard Alex Wright led the Eagles’ success with 16 points, one steal and seven rebounds. After a nine-point run early in the game, Biola was able to separate themselves from their opponents. This trend continued with the help of freshman guard Omari Maulana who scored a pair of 3-pointers.

Within 12 minutes, the Eagles earned a 23-point advantage over CSULA. Biola’s defense did their part to keep the Golden Eagles at bay, rarely allowing their opponents to maintain possession of the ball. 

Biola carried their advantage throughout the game, never letting Cal State LA catch up. With 10 offensive rebounds and a considerable point advantage, the Eagles left the court with a win, 86-67.

Men’s basketball (1-0) will head to Irvine, California to face off against The Master’s University on Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. Stats from today’s game are located on the Biola Athletics website.
