A cold shooting SCC Men’s Basketball Team could not overcome Skagit Valley College on Saturday afternoon in the SCC Gym. SCC led 27-22 at half, but was out scored in the second half by SVC 40 to 29 as the Cardinals pulled away in the final minutes, shooting 45% in the final 20 minutes while SCC could only muster 29%.
Alfie Miller led SCC with 24 points, with all 8 coming from 3 point range (8 for 13 on the night). Sean Jones with 11 points was the only other Dolphin in double figures. Joe Bodman had 15 rebounds for Shoreline, but was 1-12 from the floor.
SCC is now 12-9 overall, and 5-6 in the NWAACC Northern Region, and falling either 2-3 games behind Whatcom CC (depending on what the Orcas do on Saturday) with only 6 region games left. SCC is the defending Northern Region Champs, but have struggled in the region this season, losing two road games in over time. Skagit Valley is now 12-9 overall as well, but 10-2 in the region and is in at least a tie for first place after this game.
SCC travels to North Seattle on Wednesday and then to Whatcom on Saturday next week.
