One day after the colleges' football teams played to overtime, the Pasadena City College and College of the Canyons' men's basketball teams had to go an extra period as the Cougars prevailed over the Lancers, 93-88, Sunday at the Clash of the Canyons round-robin tournament.

Tied 79-79 at the end of regulation, Canyons (2-0) used PCC's foul trouble to convert 8-for-13 on free throws in the 5-minute overtime, sending the Lancers (1-1) to their first loss. PCC was whistled for 30 fouls overall with three players fouling out.

Free throw shooting ultimately did in Pasadena from both sides. Canyons made 77 percent from the line (23-for-30) while PCC shot a dismal 52 percent (16-of-31). 

The Lancers were led by sophomore guard Jordan Block (pictured), who scored a team-high 25 points with 4 steals and 4 rebounds, while sophomore forward Elliott Berry added 23 points, 12 rebounds and 3 steals. Berry was 3-for-5 on 3-point shots to pace the team. Marcus Harvey, a 6-foot-5 freshman forward from Pasadena High, came off the bench to score 11 points, grab 7 rebounds, and block 3 shots. 

Terrell Jones, a freshman point guard from Verbum Dei High, scored 7 points and dished out 7 assists. Freshman guard Tony Adams (Villa Park) added 9 points and contributed 4 steals.

Canyons had a pair of 25-point scorers in Brian Kimble and Brannon Bradley. 

This Friday, November 13 at 3 p.m., the Lancers face Bakersfield to open the Ventura College "We Play Hard" Tournament.
