2012 Alumni Event Recap

The annual alumni event took place on February 4, and what a day it was. Another great turnout paved the way for a fun-filled alumni game as Team Turk was able to hold onto it's lead in the final seconds over Team Papa. Besides terrific competition, Caltech junior Collin Murphy provided some unforgettable color commentary during the game. (He even aided the officials with timely calls).

Team Turk was led by Wei Li with 14 points, 5 rebounds, 3 steals, and 1 blocked shot. Scott Davies added 12 points while Ziying Wang and Jon Bird scored 9 each. Their opponents made a valiant comeback, paced by an 18-point, 5-rebound effort from Travis Haussler. Ryan Elmquist aided Team Papa with 15 points while Papa himself scored 13 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, dished out 5 assists, and recorded 1 steal. Dave Zito ran the show with several key passes and screens. In the end, Turk, who had 7 points and 6 boards, steadied his team and managed to endure the offensive onslaught by Papa's peeps.

Prior to the varsity game that night, the top rebounders in Caltech history were honored for accumulating 500+ boards during their careers.
