East Los Angeles College basketball won the 2015 Neil Edwards Classic tournament held at Citrus College by defeating Orange Coast College 71-46 on Friday, Moorpark College 81-64 on Saturday and Cuesta College 85-80 on Sunday.
Throughout the game ELAC Never gives the opposition a chance to get back into the game; ELACs defense held Orange coast to only 18 points at halftime while scoring 38 points themselves.
By games end the final score was ELAC College 71 and Orange Coast College 46. Turnovers were the common theme throughout the game as ELAC turned the ball over a combined 29 times and Orange Coast turned it over a combined 24 times.
The Huskies Freshman guard Chandler Redix helped ELAC early on by working the inside out game, passing the ball out to the open man which kept the opposition’s defense moving and at the same time getting his teammates involved.
When asked what is one aspect of the game the huskies needed to improve on Redix commented “Boxing out and not letting so many second chance points.” Head Coach John Mosley also commented that the team didn’t do a fantastic job on taking care of the ball however the ball movement and unselfish play was a high point.
Coach Mosley goes on to say “ We got big goals, trying to prepare for conference, so the goal is to execute better, take better care of the ball, rebound, all those little things that we preach in practice.”
Overall the Huskies were sharing the wealth with unselfish play and in doing so got everyone involved in the scoring department.
