Biola University sophomore Levi Auble of Valdez is part of a second unit that’s playing like first class.

The level of play hasn’t dropped off when the reserves come in for Biola, which is 14-1 and owns a 23.5-point scoring margin.

Auble, of Anchorage Christian School fame, is one of nine players averaging 15 minutes per game for the Eagles of Los Angeles, California.

The 6-foot-5 sophomore small forward is scoring 3.7 points and grabbing 3.5 rebounds per game.

Last month, he collected a career-high 11 rebounds against West Coast Baptist for his first double-digit performance.

Before that he pumped in a career-high eight points against Pomona-Pitzer. He scored seven points two weeks ago and last week he collected six points, four rebounds, a block and a steal in an 88-56 win over Fraser Valley.

Auble has been at his best near the basket, where he has scored 41 of his 56 points off free throws and two-point field goals. His signature play has been the baseline dunk.
