Spokane Runs Away From Clackamas in Second Half

DunkSpokane cruised past Clackamas with ease to advance to a Monday semifinal match up with Peninsula. It was a somewhat close contest until Spokane came out firing on all cylinders in the second half while Clackamas sputtered on offense (36% FG & 8% 3-PT FG) got out rebounded 42-32. Spokane held a slim 32-28 lead at the half, but their defensive pressure forced turnovers that led to easy baskets down the stretch. Rodney Delgardo converted back-to-back highlight reel and-one lay-ins in the open court to ignite the crowd and help the Sasquatch pull away.

Preston Wynne ripped the nets for 25pts while Danny Marshall and DeAngelo Jones had 12 each. Several Sasquatch turned in good rebounding numbers led by Marshall's 8. Marshall also had a game high 6 steals. Max Jacobsen paced the Cougars with 17pts while Derrick Hayes had a game high 10 rebounds.

Spokane will meet Peninsula in tomorrow's semifinal match at 8pm while Clackamas drops into the fourth place bracket and will face Tacoma at 2pm. Clackamas and Tacoma previously met on December 30th with CCC edging the Titans 79-76.
