In NCAA Division II action Alex Talma not only put together one of the best shooting performances ever seen at Biola University Eagles and in the PacWest Conference but quite possibly the most efficient ever produced by a Kiwi in college basketball.
The Eagles soared past Dominican University 75-66 to improve to 5-4 in conference play after a third straight win but the story behind the score line is a perfect shooting night from the former Westlake and Harbour big man.
Talma made 10 from 10 from the floor and 3 from 3 from the foul line to end up with 23 points. It’s the third-highest number of field goals made without a miss since the PacWest Conference was formed in 1992. He also added 9 rebounds and a block for good measure.
The senior forward is averaging 12.9 points per outing and a team high 9.5 rebounds per game.
