Record-breaking win for Humboldt State men

The Humboldt State men’s basketball team broke the program record for points in a single game on Monday night, defeating Capilano University 123-69 in Burnaby, D.C. 

The record was previously set during the 2001-02 season when HSU scored 119 points versus BYU Hawaii.

“We did a nice job playing 40 minutes of basketball tonight,” HSU head coach Steve Kinder said. “We went deep in our bench and played assist basketball. We shared the ball extremely well, which is becoming a trademark of this team and a trait that enhances our chances to win.” 

It was the second straight day the Jacks hit the century mark after also defeating Douglas College 100-55 on Sunday.

The Jacks had six players hit double digits in scoring in the record win, led by Deion Alston with 19 points.

Justin Everett and Calvin Young II each had 16 points, with the latter adding 12 boards and five assists.

Victor Mijas added 12 points in the win, Jackson Strong 11 and LJ Williams 10.

Zachary Christian finished with seven boards and six points.

“This trip has energized us collectively,” said Kinder. “We are excited about our first conference game this Friday at Sonoma State.”
