MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan – Anybody hoping to catch a glimpse of Kapili Gleason need look no further than the three-point line. Chances are, he’s sinking another basket launched there.

Matthew C. Perry’s sharpshooting senior racked up five threes, four in the second quarter, giving him 15 baskets from downtown this season. The Samurai on Saturday downed Edgren 51-29, their first win of the season against four defeats.

“When he gets hot, he gets hot,” Perry’s new coach Joshua Henry said. “That’s his shot. He’s our outside guy.”

Perry’s first win might have come one night earlier, were it not for the Eagles’ outscoring the Samurai 15-6 in the fourth quarter of a 51-43 victory. Henry said Perry needs to cut down on turnovers and get their passes more crisp.

“It’s coming,” Henry said. “I think we’ll see a better team at Far East” in January on Okinawa.
