The Eagles used a balanced offensive attack and some suffocating defense to jump out to a 40-21 halftime lead.  MSJC kept the Comets from making any second half comeback with timely shooting and solid work on the boards.

Tre Nottingham led three Eagles in double figures with a team high 15 points, he also dished out 5 assists.  6'2 guard Devin Fleming added 13 points and 4 assists while Roosevelt Adams scored 12 points and pulled down 7 rebounds.  Matt Bradshaw came off the bench to add 9 in the victory. 

The win was MSJC's 8th in a row and gave them their 20th win of the season against just 4 losses.  It's the ninth straight season the Eagles have reached the 20 win mark and more importantly it kept MSJC unbeaten in PCAC North play with a record of 2-0.  Palomar fell to 13-8 overall and 2-1 in conference action.  The Eagles will return to their home floor on Friday night when they host Mira Costa in a 7 pm game.
