Men’s and women’s basketball lose to Santa Rosa

The City College men’s basketball team lost its ninth Big 8 Conference game of the season Feb. 10 to the defending state champions Santa Rosa Junior College Bear Cubs, 76-59.

Much like other games this season, the Panthers kept the game close in the first half — going into the locker room down 39-34 — but couldn’t keep up with the Bear Cubs offensive onslaught in the second.

“We were only good for a half,” said City College head coach Andrew Jones. “We just stopped learning how to make baskets in the second half.”

Panthers split two-game series with Fresno City College

City College dropped a 10-inning thriller Jan. 31 to the Fresno City Rams 10-7 in the second game of a two-game series.

Despite the momentum City College had from a three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth that sent the game into extra innings, Fresno responded with three runs of its own in the top of the 10th.

“It was more lack of communication,” said Coach Derek Sullivan. “You don’t want it to happen, but you expect it. We have a decent amount of freshmen, guys new to the program. We use these as learning experiences. On Monday, we’ll go back to work on all that stuff.”

Men’s and women’s basketball teams lose to Sierra

City College men’s basketball dropped its sixth Big 8 Conference game this season Jan. 27 to the Sierra College Wolverines, in a 90-72 loss.

The Panthers kept the game close in the first half, but could not keep up with the Wolverines’ potent offense late in the second half and were outscored 48-31.

“I thought they got off to a quicker start than us from an effort standpoint,” said City College head coach Andrew Jones.

Women’s basketball falls to cross-town rival CRC

City College women’s basketball team lost its third straight Big 8 Conference matchup after losing Jan. 13 to cross-town rival Cosumnes River College in a close 60-56 game.

The Panthers had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds but came up short after the Hawks got their own rebound after a missed free throw and scored. With 10 seconds remaining in the game, Panthers’ freshman guard Jasmine Bernardo attempted a 3-pointer to cut the lead to one, but missed, giving the Hawks the chance to close out the game.

“I think we turned it over too many times, and I think we missed the easy [shots] that were uncontested,” said City College head coach Julia Allender. “I think we relied to heavily on the 3-point line in the second half, and we didn’t rebound the ball.”
