HONOLULU — The first home game of 2024 was not a winning one for the Chaminade men’s basketball team.

The Silverswords could not overcome a tough first-half stretch as they fell to visiting Academy of Art, 67-58, at McCabe Gymnasium Saturday afternoon.

Chaminade held a 10-6 lead in the first half before giving up a 10-0 run that it didn’t recover from as it trailed 30-20 at the break. The Silverswords made the second half competitive and won the frame, 38-37, but came up short as they fell to 6-12 overall and 2-8 in the PacWest standings.

Four players scored in double figures for the Urban Knights (10-5, 6-2) as they were led by Rodney Munson’s 20 points on 7 of 10 shooting (5 of 8 from beyond the arc).

Ross Reeves scored 20 points with six assists and Isaac Amaral-Artharee chipped in 12 points to lead Chaminade in the loss.
