Seattle Pacific’s men’s basketball team pushed its winning streak to 14 games with a convincing 94-68 home victory Saturday over Simon Fraser.
Harry Cavell had 19 of his career-high 27 points during the first half for the Falcons (14-4, 10-0 Great Northwest Athletic Conference).
The Falcons’ streak of 14 in a row is just one from the school record set in 2002. SPU will get a chance to tie and break that record in a two-game road trip to Alaska starting Thursday.
Cavell, a 6-foot-6 junior guard, hit 9 of 11 shots from the field and all six of his free throws. He also led all players with nine rebounds. Divant’e Moffitt amassed 23 points and eight rebounds for SPU.
SPU hits 54% from the field compared to 41% for Simon Fraser (12-7, 5-5).
