Men's Cagers Off To Rough 1-4 Start
Usually when two players can post double-doubles in points and rebounds, good things happen to basketball teams. Not so for the Pasadena City College men's basketball team November 19 when it lost for the fourth time in five games this season, losing to host Cypress College, 90-82, in a non-conference contest.
The Lancers (1-4 overall) wasted a 31-point, 10-rebound effort by transfer sophomore guard Jordan Block, who was 10-for-13 on free throws and 10-of-22 shots from the field. Freshman guard Tony Adams (pictured) came off the bench to score 12 points, grab 10 rebounds and make 3 steals.
Also for PCC, freshman guard Shawn Hampton tallied 16 points and frosh forward Marcus Harvey had 5 points and pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds. In their collegiate basketball debuts after each playing as All-National Northern Conference selections in football, forward Julius Harris and guard Taurus D'Antignac each scored one basket.
Sean Powell added 5 points and 5 assists and William Rosary 7 points and 4 rebounds.
For Cypress (3-1), Reggie Abrams scored 30 points and dished out 9 assists.
The Lancers will try to get back on the winning track when it opens against Mt. San Jacinto in the first round of the Palomar Thanksgiving Tournament Friday, November 27 at 1 p.m.
