LCCC loses to NMJC.

21 Nov

The Golden Eagles men’s basketball team started off there play on Friday against NMJC. They knew this was going to be a tough game and they had to bring there top game. In the first half, Terence Dent opened the scoring with a 3 from 25ft. The Golden Eagles went on a 7-2 struggle. They struggled getting the ball inside, and both there offensive and defensive rebounding was very poor. However, Rodriogo helped the team out a little bit with a big dunk assisted by Brice with 6 minutes left in the half. This put them down 21-28, then NMJC hit several outside shots to end the half 25-40.
The second half looked like more of the same. LCCC did not make a FG in the first 5 minutes of the second half, and Terence Dent got his 3rd foul 4 minutes into the half. Poor ball control during that stretch led to 28-56 deficit. Back to back 3’s by Brice and Justin, and a 3 point play the hard way by Allen, followed by a 3 from Terence, then a dunk by Rodrigo brought the Eagles to 46-63. Justin played well in the second half as Brice sat the bench for talking back to Coach Ficca. Justin was 3/5 with 2/3 from the 3pt. Two 3’s by Terence and Rodrigo cut the lead to 70-74 with a minute left. The Eagles ran out of gas in the last minute losing 70-78, Defense in the last 15 minutes was excellent by the Eagles, racking up most of there nine steals on the game. Rodrigo led with 15 points shooting 6/7 FG’s and 1/2 from the 3. First half poor rebounding by LCCC and hot shooting by NMJC shooting 58% from the 3 point line was to much to overcome. The game was very exciting the last 12 minutes as LCCC made there run and had chances to over take NMJC. Jahmad Saleem led NMJC with 14 points. Tough defense and balanced scoring was the key to LCCC’s come back as four players scored in double digits, and Justin added 8 points. It wa kind of a sloppy game as each team turned the ball over more than 20 times.
