Waves blow away Broncos in finale

Devin Montgomery was on fire from long range Saturday night, hitting six of the Waves' school-record 17 three-pointers as the Waves cruised to a 96-58 Senior Night win over Santa Clara. The 38-point loss was the Broncos' most lopsided defeat in their history as members of the West Coast Conference.

Montgomery finished with a career-high 26 points, matching the team's season-best single-game point total set by Glen McGowan a week earlier. He was a perfect 6-6 beyond the arc, 9-14 from the field overall and 2-2 from the free-throw line.

The game marked the final Firestone Fieldhouse appearance for seniors Craig Lewis and Cedric Suitt. They received standing ovations from the crowd of 1,843, both during the pre-game ceremony and when they went to the bench for the final time in the second half. But the role reversal on the final shots the two seniors took added some comic relief and excitement to the one-sided second half.

Lewis bade farewell to his homecourt with 13 points and three assists. Suitt recorded six rebounds and four blocks and took just one shot -- but it was memorable. While outside shooter extraordinaire Lewis went out with a thunderous dunk that brought the house down, inside force Suitt launched the first three-pointer of his career, which rimmed out but delighted the building and sent him to the bench with a huge grin on his face.

Jimmy Miggins added 16 points and seven rebounds to the Waves' cause. Terrance Johnson played possibly the best game of his career, scoring all 14 of his points in the first half while also recording seven assists. Many of his baskets and passes showed staggering court vision and athleticism that bode well for the Waves' future. Boomer Brazzle chipped in 14 points, as well.

Steve Ross was the only Bronco in double figures with eleven. Though they hung tough through most of the first half, the Broncos were nearly doubled up, 49-25, in second half scoring and emptied their bench even before the Waves did.
