In a season that didn’t have a lot of expectations, the Comets men’s basketball team surprised a lot of people.
Finish with a winning record? Check.
Win their division? Check.
The only thing they didn’t accomplish was a spot in the SoCal Regional playoffs.
Coach John O’Neill and his men’s team finished with a 15-12 overall record (6-2 PCAC Northern Division), a step up from their 11-17 record last season, when they finished fourth in their division.
With leading scorer Jeremy Franklin being one of only three sophomores this season, the Comets didn’t play like a rookie squad, staying close in most of their games.
The Comets finished as co-PCAC Northern Division Champions with Mt. San Jacinto, but due to Mt. San Jacinto finishing with a better overall record (23-7), they got the nod to advance to the postseason instead of Palomar.
