On a night where the men’s basketball team celebrated its three sophomores, the Comets took to the Dome floor knowing they needed to win their home finale to keep their hopes of winning the PCAC North Division alive.

With the help of freshman Matt Duniphan, the team did just that in an 86-68 victory over Imperial Valley on Feb.13. Duniphan, an Escondido High import, had his first double- double of the season with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

The team’s three sophomores, guards James Sampson and Keith “K.J.” Houston, and forward Jeremy Franklin, made sure that their final home game was a game to remember.

With their friends and family there to watch the game, Houston had 10 points and 6 rebounds; Sampson was a rebound and assist away from achieving a triple-double (12 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists); and Franklin scored 19 points, including a spectacular dunk in the third quarter that nearly broke the backboard.
