Marina had a chance Wednesday night to tie or break that mark in a home game against Esperanza. The outcome of that Sunset League contest was not available at press time.
The Vikings were a bit sloppy in the first half of Monday's game against Westminster and only led the Lions, 40-37, at the half. But they put the game away with a 36-point outburst in the third quarter to score a runaway victory.
Marina's pressure defense forced 37 turnovers in the game.
Mike Kinoshita led the Vikings in scoring, hitting eight three-point shots en route to 30 points. Garrett James' all-around performance included 28 points, seven assists and eight steals.
Brendan Holmes scored 11 points and Dion Douglas had 10 points and four assists.
"Our guys did a great job of taking care of the ball in the second half and we were able to get our running game going," Holmes said. "Westminster tried to take the threes away and that left the lane open for James and Douglas to drive and score in the key. That opened it up for our shooters to drain 10 threes in the second half."
Previously, Marina was outgunned by Los Alamitos in the Sunset League opener for both schools, 106-87. Kinoshita and Troy Lewis each hit seven three-pointers and finished with 25 and 22 points, respectively.
