Spokane Finishes Strong to Win in First Round of Tournament

The Community Colleges of Spokane Men's Basketball team beat Linn-ActionBenton College in Eugene by a final score of 82-66 in the first round of the Dale Bates Invitational at Lane Community College. Spokane improved to 5-1 on the season with the win. The game was close throughout with Spokane surging ahead just before half to take a 33-25 lead into the break. Linn-Benton rallied to tie the game with 12:15 to play in the second half before four consecutive three-pointers by the Sasquatch contributed to an 18-2 run as Spokane pulled away. 
 
Spokane was led in scoring by Brad Johnson with 22 points off the bench. Chris Pynch added 17 and Kevin Bond chipped in with 13 points and eight rebounds. Griffon Jones added 12 for the Sasquatch.
 
This game was scheduled for last night but the entire tournament was postponed a day due to freezing rain and icy conditions in the Eugene area. The Sasquatch will play in the semifinals tomorrow at 4:00 pm against Pierce College with the final round of the tournament being played on Monday.
