Narrowing the gap

The men’s basketball team couldn’t hang on to a 20-point lead as the West LA College Wildcats came back to beat the Brahmas by a score of 83-77.

With the loss, the team drops to 12-13 in the season, with a 0-5 record in conference play.

Robert Salone, a guard, said the team should have done better in this game.

“I think we just lost our spark and lost our energy,” Salone said. “We just have to do a better job of closing out games.”

The Brahmas started dominating the game and took a 42-29 lead at the half, but West LA narrowed the gap to six points before the Brahmas called a timeout.

The Brahmas missed free throws, turnovers and personal fouls are what cost the team the game.

Head coach Casey Weitzel said they need to be efficient in both quarters.

“We just completely moved the ball in the first half,” Weitzel said. “We just got a little bit stagnant in that second half. We try to focus on getting better every day, and try to let the results take care of themselves.”

Anthony McIntyre led the Brahmas with 33 points in the game, while Mo Sako had 21 rebounds with 11 of those being on offense.

Assistant coach Bruce English said the team’s focus is improving each game.

“One thing coach Casey’s really good at is doing offcourt [team] activities,” English said. “As far as off the court, we try to make sure the guys are doing everything they’re supposed to be doing in the classroom.”

The Brahmas are on the road when they face the Bakersfield College Renegades on Wednesday, Feb.13, at 5 p.m.
