That is one point shy of the school record, and he tied another school mark with nine made 3-pointers. Playing 41 minutes, he hit 9-of-13 3-pointers with four steals and four assists, becoming only the fifth CCAA player since 2013 to go for 40 or more. He followed that with 28 points, eight rebounds and three assists in a win over Cal State San Bernardino. For the week, he shot 65 percent from the field, 67 percent from long range and added 5.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.0 steals per game.
