BC MEN SPLIT, DROP TO 3RD IN REGION
The Bellevue College men's basketball team split two games last week as they continue their push for an NWAACC playoff spot. On Wednesday, Feb. 8, the fourth-ranked Bulldogs travelled to take on the Cardinals of Skagit Valley College. Bellevue wasted no time taking a big lead as they went into the half up by 14 at 43-29. The second half was much of the same as the Cardinals never got closer than a ten point deficit. Bellevue out rebounded Skagit Valley 41-29 and also held them to just 40% shooting on the night.
Bellevue was led in scoring by the game-high 27 points of Jon Humphrie. In Humphrie's return from an ankle injury, he also grabbed five rebounds. Rex Nelson scored 20 points and had six rebounds, while Tre Benton and Keaton Hayenga each turned in games
On Saturday, Feb. 11, the Bulldogs hosted the North Seattle Community College Storm. North Seattle came out with a great defensive game plan limiting the Bulldog drives to the basket and contesting every shot. Bellevue was held to just 41% shooting from the field and turned the ball over 18 times. North Seattle also out rebounded Bellevue 33-38 and pulled out a 77-73 victory. Despite the loss, Humphrie still led the Bulldogs in scoring17 points, Nelson added 14 with seven rebounds, and freshman Andrew Squiers contributed 14 points.
The loss drops Bellevue to third place in the North region standings at 8-3 in league, 18-3 overall. The next two games for the Bulldogs are both on the road. First, they travel to Bellingham on Wednesday, Feb. 15 to battle the first place Orcas of Whatcom Community College (11-1, 19-3). That game starts at 7 p.m. Then, on Saturday, Feb. 18, the Bulldogs go to Edmonds (2-9, 2-17) for another 7 p.m. game.
