THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Austin Cole, Kyle Ferreira and Michael Wadsworth were honored before the game as Kingsmen basketball took on Claremont-Mudd-Scripps for Senior Night on Saturday. The Stags were victorious in the matchup and defeated the Kingsmen 84-46.

Ferreira and Cole both scored in double-digits with 14 and 12, respectively. Wadsworth was the next highest scorer and chipped in with six. Ferreira has scored double-digits in 23 of the 24 games this year and Cole has done so in 22 of them. 

Ferreira also led CLU with six rebounds and tied with Jarrett Powers for the team-high in assists with two. Tyler Brabant stood out defensively and recorded two steals and a block. 

The Kingsmen had a tough shooting night as they went 14-for-47 (29.8%) from the field and 3-14 (21.4%) from three-point range. CMS took advantage of the poor shooting night and shot 57.6-percent from the field and 40-percent from three.

Cal Lutheran found itself in a quick hole as CMS was up 14-6 just five minutes into the game. The Stage kept the distance at double-digits for most of the half, but then a jumper from Cole and a free throw from Ferreira made it 28-20 with 5:25 left. CMS was able to push the lead back to double-digits by the end of the half and took a 36-23 lead at the break.

CMS opened up its lead in the second half. From the 14:55 mark to 11:18, the Stags made five consecutive three pointers and had a 61-30 lead. CLU was never able to get back into the game as CMS won the contest with a final score 84-46.

The Kingsmen and their senior class have one more game left in the season. Cal Lutheran will be at Whittier on Tuesday with tip off set for 7 p.m.
