MSJC Comes up Just Short in Men's Game at SBVC

The MSJC men's basketball team gave themselves a chance on Saturday, but came up just short of a Foothill Conference victory when they lost at San Bernardino Valley 68-64.mylanforweb.jpg

The Eagles used a deliberate pace in the first half and held their own on the boards against the very big front line of SBVC to build a 29-25 halftime lead.  In the second half a 6 minute stretch of hot shooting by the Wolverines gave them the lead and they would never relinquish it despite a strong late push by the Eagles.

MSJC finished the day with balanced scoring led by Dwayne Benjamin's 13 points.  Mylan Jordan came off the bench to add 12 while 7 other players scored between 4 and 7 points.  The Eagles finished the day out rebounded SBVC 42-32.  The Eagles shot just 35% for the game despite going 8 for 17 from the three point line.

The loss drops MSJC to 14-6 on the year and 2-3 in Foothill Conference action while SBVC improved to 13-6, 4-1.  The Eagles are back in action on Wednesday when they host Chaffey College in a 7 pm game.  MSJC will also be home on Saturday afternoon when they host Antelope Valley at 3 pm.
