The Pasadena City College men's basketball team performed a feat in scoring futility Friday night that hadn't been done since John F. Kennedy was President of the United States.
There is no mistaking the level of difficulty of the early season schedule for the Pasadena City College men's basketball team. The unranked Lancers opened the San Bernardino Valley Alvin Hunter Classic on November 14 with a matchup against the region's No. 3-rated Saddleback Gauchos. PCC had faced No. 1 Antelope Valley in its previous tournament at Ventura, losing to the Marauders by 22 points.
Last season, the Pasadena City College men's basketball team completed the program's most successful campaign in seven years under head coach Michael Swanegan. The Lancers used veteran leadership and the play of graduated All-State forward Taj Spencer to win 21 games and reach the SoCal Playoffs for the first time in 10 seasons.
Pasadena City College men's basketball guard Mike Swanegan, an All-South Coast Conference North Division selection from the 2012-13 team, accepted a scholarship to continue his education and playing career at William Penn University (Iowa). Swanegan played for his father, Lancers head coach Michael Swanegan, for two seasons at PCC.
