Mensah registered 12 points, three rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes as a starter in his eighth game since joining the team prior to the start of the season. His overall performance would have been way better had he not turned the ball over five times in the game.

He was the only San Marcos player to score in double figures aside Greg Milton III who scored 33 points to lead all players in scoring.
