Sasquatch Hang on to Defeat Pierce

ActionThe Community Colleges of Spokane Men's Basketball team defeated Pierce College 77-69 in the semifinals of the Dales Bates Invitational tournament at Lane CC in Eugene. Spokane improved their record on the season to 6-1 with the win.

Spokane took a five point lead into half and stretched their lead to 11 with fifteen minutes to go. Pierce stormed back to take the lead with 5:41 to go before an inside basket by Griffon Jones and a clutch three pointer by Zach Humphrey put the Sasquatch back on top for good and they converted seven of eight free throws in the last minute to seal the deal.

Spokane was led in scoring by Jones with 20 points. Humphrey and Kevin Bond added 17 each while Chris Pynch chipped in with 14. Danny Marshall led Spokane with 13 rebounds.

Spokane will face Umpqua in the championship game at 2:00 pm tomorrow. This tournament was delayed one day because of freezing rain and icy conditions in the Eugene area on Friday.
