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.”
