Eagles Win Two More, Island All Tourney
The Mt. San Jacinto men's basketball team bounced back from their loss to top ranked Fullerton with a pair of victories Friday and Saturday to move to 12-1 on the season.
Friday the Eagles defeated a scrappy team from East Los Angeles 83-75 behind 16 points a piece from freshmen Marc Wilson and Mark Williams. Tim Island (pictured) added 15. Saturday saw the Eagles come back from a 16 point second half deficit to defeat Long Beach City College 73-67 in the fifth place game of the Wells Fargo Holiday Tournament. Saturday it was once again Marc Wilson leading the way with 18 points as four MSJC players hit double figures. Tim Island added 16 while Dejuan Flowers poured in 15 and Lee Stephens had 11 points and 7 rebounds.
Tim Island was named to the All Tournament team for his efforts during the week leading his team to a 3-1 record and the fifth place finish. Island averaged 16 points during the four games and had a tourney high 21 against Fullerton. The Eagles will be back in action this Friday (Dec. 14th) when they travel to Ventura for another tournament. MSJC opens the tourney against Allen Hancock College at 3 pm.
