Men’s basketball team pushes for season playoffs

Palomar College’s Men’s Basketball has been on a roll this season.

They finished January with a 16-6 record, and put up some impressive stats.

Averaging 74.8 points per game and 37.9 rebounds per game, have contributed to their .762 winning percentage. The team has scored 1570 this season, with 268 of those scored by freshman Michael Brandon.

Although the turnover to steal per game ratio is 14.1 turnovers per game to 9.2 steals per game, their average of 37.9 rebounds per game helps with the turnovers allowed. These numbers clearly didn’t stop them from having a winning season.

Another positive was finishing the Thanksgiving Tournament with a record of 3-0, beating LA Harbor, Compton, and Orange Coast. Their longest win streak was 10 games.

With last season ending in a 8-19 record, the 2019-2020 Comets have shown that they left the past behind them. This change has been shown by improving in almost every stat category they previously lacked, such as points per game, rebounds per game, and assists per game.

The team is on track to gain a playoff spot this season with their record in conference play and in non-conference play. They are looking to get past the State Final Four, surpassing the 2012-2013 season and win the tournament.

You can catch the next game against San Diego Mesa Feb. 12 at the Dome. After that, they play away at San Diego City on Feb. 14. The final home games are scheduled for Feb. 19 and 21.
