BULLDOGS BACK IN ACTION, DOMINATE WEST HILLS IN REMATCH

BULLDOGS BACK IN ACTION, DOMINATE WEST HILLS IN REMATCH

After nearly two weeks off from competitive play, Hancock Men's basketball returned in grand fashion, beating West Hills Lemoore 104-66.

Hancock hosted the Golden Eagles in their home opener earlier this season, winning 100-40 but this time they traveled to Lemoore.

From tip-off it seemed as though it would be an easy repeat from the first game. The Bulldogs jumped to a 28-17 lead early in the first haf.

That lead was stretched to 33-17, highlighted by a fast-break when the ball was passed four times without touching the floor and finished off by a monstrous dunk by sophomore forward Trenton Mitchell.

The pesky Golden Eagles played solid half-court defense and hit a number threes to stay close. The Bulldogs led 50-39 going into the half.

From the start of the second half, the Bulldogs press proved to be too overwhelming for the Golden Eagles. Steals and turnovers resulted in a 30-5 run, blowing the lead wide open.

13 of the 14 Bulldogs players contributed in the scoring column, with four players finishing in double-figures. JT Riddick led the charge with 19 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 blocks. Spirit Ricks added 14 points. Glenn Jordan and freshman forward Tasson Thomas both chipped in with 11 points each.

This Saturday, the #5 Bulldogs will host #3 Cerritos College for a match-up between two ranked squads. Both teams share identical records of 7-1. Tip-off is at 5pm at Joe White Memorial Gymnasium.
