Walton added 8 points and 7 rebounds.

In Saturday's third place game of the tournament MSJC fell to Citrus for the second time in two weeks this time in a back an forth contest that ended with the Owls winning 72-70.  Sanders led MSJC in scoring on Saturday with 22 points while Walton added 12.  Payne finished the game with 7 points and a game high 9 rebounds.

The Eagles are now 2-4 on the season and will open play at the San Bernardino Valley Tournament on Friday against West Los Angeles at 3 pm.
