Arman Kalan had 15 points and eight rebounds to lead the Clark College men’s basketball team to a 70-61 win over Centralia on Wednesday.

“Kalan was really the guy tonight,” Clark coach Mike Arnold said. “We really made a big difference in the second half.”

Dan Anderson also had 15 points and rebound for Clark, which led 38-35 at halftime.

“Our defense was much better than it has been in a while,” Arnold said. “We stayed with it for both halves, and that was a big difference. They’re big kid (Jerome Fisher) averages 22. But he only played 21 minutes and fouled out (with two points).”
