SALT LAKE CITY — After going 1-3 in their last four road games, the Westminster men's basketball team was happy to be back at home as they began a four-game homestand in Salt Lake City. On Friday night the Griffins hosted the Adams State Grizzlies, which turned out to be a good RMAC matchup for both teams.
Adams State went to halftime leading by four, but the Griffins' Alec Monson hit four threes in the game to keep the Griffins in the contest as he led the team with 20 points. It wasn't enough, as the Griffins fell 75-70.
On Saturday night Jake Connor found his rhythm from downtown as he was able to hit five 3-pointers on the night. Connor was one of three players to lead the team with 15 points as the Griffins defeated the Skyhawks 74-59 to capture a key conference victory.Comment on this story
