The Shoreline Community College Men’s Basketball team is on
a roll! They have now won 5 games in a row. And it is just in time with only 3
games left to decide who makes it to the NWAACC Playoffs. The Dolphins won
tonight on their home floor against Skagit Valley College 94-84.
Tonight’s game was truly one of ups and downs. The Dolphins
at one time led by as much as 15 but before you knew it the game was within 5
points. Sophomore Center Nashon George was Shoreline’s scoring leader with 23
points and 9 rebounds. Bulla Vienna came away with a double-double off of the
bench scoring 16points and pulling down 14 rebounds. Guard Kadeem Stewart also
had a double-double with 17 points and 10 assists.
For the Skagit Valley Cardinals Riley Newman led the game in
scoring with 29 points. Where the Cardinals suffered the most was in their 18
turnovers. Shoreline was able to convert
many of those into fast breaks leading to 17 of their points.
The Dolphins now have a record of 7-14 overall. They are
currently tied with Bellevue College for 5th place in the region and only one
game behind both Peninsula College and Everett Community College. Needless to
say it is a very tight match for the 3rd and 4th Northern Region spot.
Shoreline is in the hunting for a spot in the NWAACC Conference Tournament in
there next two games.
Shoreline is playing the number one team in the Northern
Region, Edmonds Community College, on Saturday February 16th, 2013 in Edmonds,
WA at 7:00 PM. The Dolphins need help packing the house in Edmonds to help get an upset and continue their win streak.
