Eagles Run Past Chaffey

MSJC ran up 99 points Wednesday night as they ended a two game losing streak with a 99-92 win over visiting Chaffey College. The victory was the 20th of the season for the Eagles who improved to 20-4 overall and 4-2 in the Foothill Conference.

Mark Williams led the Eagles charge scoring 31 pointed and dishing out 12 assists. Williams got MSJC off to a quick start scoring 13 points in the first six minutes of the game. The Eagles transition game forced Chaffey to go into a zone defense for most of the last 30 minutes of the contest. The Eagles also took advantage of Chaffey's aggression defensively scoring several lay-ins at the basket. The Eagles shot an amazing 58% from the field for the game and 39% from the three point line. While Chaffey, the state's top scoring offense, went just 7-34 from long range good for only 20%.

Lee Stephens narrowly missed a double double with 15 points and 9 rebounds, while teammates Marc Wilson (13), Dejuan Flowers (10), and Rodney Williams (10) also scored in double digits.Rodney Williams
