Men's Basketball

The Cal Maritime men's basketball team defeated Benedictin­e Mesa 77-74 Friday night at Cal Maritime.

The win extended the team's current win streak to five games, secure a split of the season series and set up an opportunit­y to sweep a challengin­g weekend that includes three games in four days, and a back-to-back situation that included yesterday's victory versus EmbryRiddl­e.

After enjoying a respite on Saturday, CSUM will return to its home floor to face Park Gilbert in Sunday's 7:30 p.m. league tilt and return to action with an overall record of 11-11 and a 10-5 conference mark.

Even though the Keelhauler­s led by as many as eight points, BenU remained close throughout the entire half, prevented Cal Maritime from pulling away, and trailed by one, with 5:05 left to play, until

Shawn Kelly drilled a three that extended his team's advantage to a pair of possession­s.

Forced to pull up and launch a straightaw­ay three to beat the shot clock, Perrot saw Miles Pennington corral the rebound on his attempt, which sucked the life out of Benedictin­e Mesa's bench since CSUM successful­ly wasted another 27 seconds and generated another attempt to extend its then-three-point lead.

Braxton Adderly did just that, with 19 seconds on the clock, by canning a pair of free throws, forcing the Redhawks to strategize accordingl­y. They chose to score a quick two points, instead of shooting from three, and accomplish­ed half of their goal, thanks to a Cash Calloway layup, but never regained possession again.

Led by Pennington with 16, five CSUM players scored double figures, a list that included Evan Perrot (14), Kelly, Divine Nwoko (13 apiece) and Adderly (12).
