Diablo Valley College Vs. City College

City College men’s basketball team struggled against Diablo Valley College on Jan. 17. The DVC Vikings (17-2, 4-1 in conference) came into the game ranked number one in the state.

The Panthers tried to gain control of the game from the beginning but lost with a final score of 47-78.

“Honestly, we just got out played and they wanted it more,” freshman guard Antwoine Davis said. “We have got to match the intensity that the other team brings.”

DVC sophomore guard Brian Goins finished with 18 points while the Panthers were led by Davis who tallied nine points in the second half rally effort.

“I think we caught them on a bad night, and we got off to a pretty good start,” said DVC Head Coach Steve Coccimiglio. “We got a good lead at halftime.”

The halftime score had DVC up 40-18 on the Panthers (12-4, 2-3 in conference) who couldn’t put a big enough dent in the deficit to comeback.

“Sac City’s got an excellent record and good players and we knew that we had to come out in the second-half and not have any drop off,” Coccimiglio said.
