In a home game against Sierra College Feb. 25, the Panthers routed the Wolverines 83-57. City College fell behind 12-2 early and then went on a 22-0 run, including a 42-13 run to lead 44-25 at the end of the first half.

“We were too excited I think and we had turnovers,” said Panthers head coach Andrew Jones on the team’s early struggle. “When they (Sierra) had to go against our zone, we just didn’t let them breathe.”

“We’ve been working harder in practice as a team,” said Jeffery. “Feels good when we come out and show it in a game—it translates, and we just need to keep the momentum going.”

The Panthers lost a close road game Jan. 29 to the Santa Rosa Bear Cubs. City College led 30-20 at the end of the first half and was outscored by 14 points in the second half, which allowed Santa Rosa to improve to 7-2 at home, winning 59-55.

The Panthers will now have to win their final five games to keep their playoff hopes alive.
