The Chico State men’s basketball team had an eventful weekend on the road, battling it out on the court in two thrilling games. The Wildcats faced off against Cal State Monterey Bay on Thursday 78-67, but fell short against Stanislaus State on Saturday 69-73.

In the first game on Thursday, held at the Kelp Bed Arena, the Wildcats delivered an impressive performance from an early start. The first half of the game saw the Wildcats taking control and securing a comfortable 42-34 lead at the end of the first half.  The team continued with a lead securing a well-deserved victory against the Monterey Bay Sea Otters. 

The game unfolded with standout plays from Kevin Wright Jr. and JoJo Murphy who both secured 20 points each, contributing to the team’s success.

With spirits high from the initial triumph, the Wildcats geared up for the second away game on Saturday against the Stanislaus State Warriors. However, the competition proved fierce, and despite their best efforts, the Chico State team fell short.

With these experiences in mind, the Wildcats return to their home court, ready to refine their strategies and face the challenges of the upcoming games.
