MSJC Falls to Fullerton at Holiday Tourney
The MSJC men's basketball team couldn't hold on to their halftime lead as they dropped a close contest with Fullerton Thursday evening 86-80 in the second round of the Riverside Holiday Tournament.
The Eagles who built an early 20 point lead and never trailed until there was less than 10 minutes left in the game were led by Mark Williams 27 points. Shenon Johannes added 18 in the losing effort for MSJC. The combination of Fullerton's full court pressure and some second half foul trouble for the Eagles helped spark the Hornets comeback.
The loss dropped the Eagles to 7-5 on the season while Fullerton improved to 6-4. MSJC is back in action today when they continue play in the tournament. The Eagles will take on Riverside at 3 pm this afternoon (Dec. 12th). You can hear all of the action live on the Eagle Radio Network at 1620 AM or msjc.edu.
Mark Williams scored 17 points Thursday for MSJC but it wasn't enough as the Eagles fell to Fullerton 86-80.
