Geneva Drops Tournament Opener in California

Thousand Oaks, CA – The Geneva College men’s basketball team traveled across the country to participate in a holiday tournament at California Lutheran University beginning with a first round match-up with Carthage late Thursday night. While the tip-off took place at 11:00 pm local time, the Golden Tornadoes did not receive that wake-up call. Geneva dropped a 74-46 decision to Carthage after shooting just 17% from the field in the first half and falling behind by 18 points by the halftime break. The loss dropped Geneva’s overall record to 3-7 as it prepares to face the host school in Friday night’s consolation game.

Geneva converted on just three of its first 26 shots including an 0-7 effort from three-point range. The Golden Tornadoes also suffered 11 turnovers in the first stanza to make matter worse. Meanwhile, Carthage shot 46% from the field in the first half and finished the game with a mark of 49%.

The Golden Tornadoes got 12 points each from David Phillips, Lambros Svingos and Matt Lorello but it was not nearly enough to slow down a Carthage team that will face Washington College in the tournament’s championship game on Friday night.

After Friday’s consolation match-up with California Lutheran the Golden Tornadoes will return home next week to face Wooster on the road on Wednesday before getting back into conference play with a game at Thiel a week from Saturday. Geneva doesn’t return home until January 11th for a game with Saint Vincent College.
