New Era of Leatherneck Basketball
Leatherneck mens basketball opened up the 2013 season with an exhibition game at Western Hall against Knox College.
Fans who attended the game saw an offensive explosion from the Leathernecks who won 97-54.
Western was fueled by new freshman Garret Covington who scored a game high 24 points including 18 in the first half.
The duo of point guards in Jordan Foster and Jabari Sandifer filled in the big shoes of Ceola Clark nicely by combining for 14 assists 13 points and 6 steals.
Western will open up their schedule on the road against Idaho this Saturday. They will play a total of 3 games on the road before returning to Western Hall for a game against Eureka College late November.
