Wed. Jan. 30
The LPC Men’s basketball team paid a visit to the home of the best team in the conference, No. 1 ranked City College of San Francisco.
The Hawks kept it close throughout the first half, trailing by just one point at halftime. The second half was not so kind to the Hawks. The final score was CCSF 88 LPC 71.
Freshman guard Jacob Contreras led the team with 18 points. Another freshman guard, B.T. Shabazz, added 17 points in a losing effort.
Although LPC lost, they are able to hang their hat on the fact that their 71 points scored was the highest amount that CCSF has given up all season.
The struggles continue for the Hawks, as they are now just 5-16 with an 0-6 conference record.
It was a doubleheader that night at CCSF. The Lady Hawks were also in San Francisco to battle the San Francisco City College Rams. The result was lackluster for LPC with a final score of 61-53, the team falling to 3-3 in the Coast Conference North Division and 12-8 overall.
Sophomore forward Carlie Bonderer led the team in scoring with 32 against what has historically been the best team in the conference.
Much improved from the previous season under coach Lindsay Wisely, the new and improved team under coach Clarence Morgan looks to be on track for the postseason. Bonderer is first in California for scoring and the Lady Hawks have six games remaining during the regular season.
