Cubs Annihilate Miramar

Miramar College is in its second year of sponsoring intercollegiate men’s basketball but it learned a valuable lesson from the Cubs last Saturday – they have a long way to go.

In what may be termed the “best executed game of the season to date” by the Cubs, Miramar fell victim to its own inexperience as they trailed LA City 41-19 at half time. The Cubs continued their onslaught throughout the second half in capturing the 50 point victory.

However, it wasn’t the score that put a smile on the face of head coach Mike Miller as much as it was the manner in which the Cubs performed.

“We still have a long way to go and no less hard work ahead of us, but tonight’s game finally showed that this Cub team has the makings of being a competitive and serious contender by the time the our Conference season rolls around,” said Miller.

Freshman Cub guard James White scored a career high 16 points. Sophomore All-Conference returnee guard Eric Nelson (6-2, Hamilton HS) also popped for 16 points.

Three Cubs - frosh guard Branden Fisher (5-11), red-shirt freshman forward Mundrell Young,(6-6) and forward Diego Belizario (So., 6-8) each scored nine points.

Game honors went to sophomore forward Maurice Walters (6-3, Taft HS) who claimed his first “double-double” of this season with 13 points and 12 rebounds. He also passed for five assists.
