Box Score

(written by Calvin Sports Information Student Assistant Derek Neice)

Calvin’s season is still alive.

Coming back from a deficit as large as 14 in Friday night’s MIAA Tournament semifinal game against Olivet, the Knights took their first lead of the game with 3:21 left in the second half and hung on to that lead to win 63-57 and move on to the championship round against Hope. Hope defeated Adrian 75-66 in Friday’s first semifinal game.

Senior Matt Veltema led all scorers with 15 clutch points, and his baseline fall-away jumper late in the second half to give Calvin the lead proved to be the difference, because that lead was not relinquished once possessed.

(written by sports information student assistant Derek Neice)

Calvin’s trademark this season has been its clutch shooting from everywhere on the floor.  From beyond the three-point line, in the paint and from the charity stripe, the Knights have consistently been a quality shooting team.  Saturday afternoon exemplified just that as Calvin defeated Kalamazoo by a score of 86-59.
