THOUSAND OAKS — Kory Hamane scored a team-high 18 points in his career finale, but the Occidental men's basketball team lost its last game of the season at Cal Lutheran, 69-60 on Monday.
Despite aggravating a sprained ankle he's dealt with the past couple of weeks in the first half, Hamane came on strong with 16 points in the second half, including 4 of 6 shooting from beyond the 3-point line, to keep the Tigers within striking distance of the Kingsmen. He drilled a 22-footer with a hand in his face with 4:40 left to tie the game at 53, but Cal Lu countered with a 7-0 run to take control of the game.
Oxy forward Andrew Johnson scored 14 points and had four assists while dealing with foul trouble in both halves.
Jeremy Sulker-Hall scored 20 for Cal Lu, Dan Wade had 19 and Austin Cole had 13, including a trio of 3-pointers that halted any Oxy momentum late.
