On Wednesday, February 19, College of the Canyon’s men’s basketball team took on LA West College in the last home game of the season.
In the early portion of the game the cougars were unable to make shots and get rebounds. At the end of the first half they were trailing 28-47. However in the second half they would not let the same thing happen.
It was players like Robert Hunter that made it possible to even attempt a comeback. Hunter would have six rebounds in just the second half.
Other players like Christopher Bradford who scored a total of 17-points also kept the team’s chances of a comeback alive. The team would step up and take it to LA West out scoring them by 10-points in the second half. Unfortunately that would not be enough and COC lost 85-76.
“Rebound better and get off to a better start” is what Coach Fisher says the team will have to do to ensure a win in the last game of the season.
