Welcome Home, Mr. Carter! Warriors VictoriousSalem-News.com Sports
(SALEM, Oregon) - Freshman Jordan Carter (Salem, Ore.) made his home debut Saturday scoring a career-high 17 points on 6-for-10 shooting from the field, as Corban's men's basketball team posted a come-from-behind win over Cal State Maritime, 65-56, inside the C.E. Jeffers Sports Center.
"Tonight was a fun game," said Carter. "It was nice to get out on the court and play against different guys, as seeing the same players day in and day out at practice in okay but this was a time to play ball, celebrate, and have a good time. I enjoyed playing in front of the home crowd, as many family and friends were here to cheer me on in my official home debut as a Warrior."
The first-year Warrior would open the game a perfect 3-for-3 from the field and finished the half shooting 4-for-5 from the floor. Carter's second half performance was just as exciting despite a 2-for-5 performance, as he helped lead the Warriors to the victory.
Senior Nash Keene (Aumsville, Ore.) would lead all players in scoring with a game-high 18 points on 7-for-15 shooting from the field, while the reigning Cascade Collegiate Conference Player of the Week and junior Erik Cronrath (Battle Ground, Wash.) added 11 points, five rebounds, and a team-high tying two steals. Senior Ian Logan (Aloha, Ore.) would lead Corban's rebounding efforts with a team-best 15 rebounds, while junior Jonathan Ramirez (New Britain, Ct.) added nine points and a team-high tying three assists.
Cal State Maritime would come out of the gates with guns blazing, as the visiting Keelhaulers took the lead in the opening two minutes of the first half and never relinquished it until midway through the second half. CSUM increased its first-half lead to as much as 10 points (21-11) following a Jaquai Wiley jumper with 11:46 left in the first half. Corban would slowly claw its way back getting within a single point (29-28) thanks to a free throw by senior Deonte Johnson (Modesto, Calif.) with 2:18 showing on the clock. Over the final two-plus minutes, Cal State Maritime used a closing 6-2 run to end the first half with Daniel St. Hubert hitting a free throw with 27 seconds left for a five-point Keelhauler halftime lead, 35-30.
The second half would begin with a David Prendeble three-pointer that quickly extended CSUM's lead to eight points (38-30) before Corban pulled to within one point (43-42) thanks to a 12-5 run. The host Warriors would take their first lead of the game when Cronrath completed an old-fashion three-point play with a jumper in the paint following by a free throw for a 45-43 Corban lead with 11:34 left. A quick 5-0 run by the visiting Keelhaulers would push CSUM's lead to three points (48-45) before Corban used a 12-6 run over a span of seven-plus minutes to grab a six-point lead (57-51) following a monstrous dunk in traffic by Cronrath and a free throw. Another free throw by Carter would extend the Warriors' lead to seven points (58-51) before Cal State Maritime pulled back to within four points (60-56) after a pair of Wiley free throws. Free throw shooting, timely offensive rebounding down the stretch, and a Keene fast break lay-in with eight seconds remaining would hand the Warriors' the victory (65-56), as Corban remains unbeaten this season.
Prendeble led all Cal State Maritime players with 11 points and a game-high 19 rebounds, while Ty Houghton and Wiley added 11 and 10 points respectively.
Corban would shoot 20-for-54 (37.0%) from the field, 7-for-28 (25.0%) from three-point range, and 18-for-30 (60.0%) at the free throw line for the game. On the other hand, Cal State Maritime was 19-for-61 (31.1%) from the field, 6-for-24 (25.0%) from long distance, and 12-for-24 (50.0%) at the charity stripe.
With the win, Corban improves to 3-0 this season and Cal State Maritime drops its third straight game to fall to 1-5 this year. The Warriors will return to action on Tuesday, November 16th, in an exhibition contest against NCAA Division II member Saint Martin's University beginning at 7:00 p.m. in Olympia, Washington.
