"The one time ever in my life four players in a game was a scrimmage in high school," Bingaya said.
The Black and Gold still had a chance to tie the game on the final possession, but came up short for their 11th conference loss of the 2014-2015 campaign, 73-71.
"At the end of the ballgame we can talk about Chip getting in there and you know, this or that, but the game was decided when we got up eleven, had the ball and just went nuts and took some bad shots and let them back in the ballgame," head coach Doc Sadler said.
Bingaya added that despite the outcome he was proud of how his team played under less than desirable circumstances.
"It's tough to play when you got seven dudes active in a game and it's not always going to go our way. We had the lead, yeah, but things happen in the game. It gets lopsided, but I give credit to my team because they went out there and fought hard."
