Spokane Hangs on in Defensive Battle

The Community Colleges of Spokane Men's Basketball team beat HighlineAction on the road in Des Moines 53-50 in a defensive battle. The game was tied at 50 with 35 seconds left when Chris Pynch was fouled driving to the basket and made both free throws. He then made one of two after Spokane got a stop and Highline had a 30 footer rim out at the buzzer.

Neither team led by more than six points and Spokane held a 22-20 halftime lead. Spokane defended well and hung on for the victory despite being out-rebounded 46-37 and shooting just 2-19 from behind the arc.

Spokane was led in scoring by Pynch with 15 points and Kevin Bond with 12 points. Pynch and Danny Marshall led the Sasquatch with eight rebounds apiece.

Spokane plays Green River Community College at 2:00 pm tomorrow in Auburn.
