Men’s basketball ended its season today with a 90-76 loss to Feather River College in the California Community College Athletic Association state playoffs, held at Las Positas College.
East Los Angeles College sophomore forward Roderick Williams played his last game as a Husky scoring 20 points and had seven rebounds.
Williams will now transfer to the University of Texas at El Paso.
ELAC was too small at times and appeared to lack the offensive fire power needed to keep up with FRC.
Williams had a huge dunk and an eye-catching, no- look pass to freshman guard Frank Bertz on consecutive plays in the first half as ELAC tried to catch up, 20-15.
The first half was close, ELAC fought neck and neck, until foul trouble hindered the Huskies from making a move. Sophomores, guard Chandler Redix and forward Zeno Lake had to watch from the bench as FRC pulled away. Lake played and started the second half for a minute and caught his fourth foul, forcing him to sit until late in the game.
ELAC bids farewell to another class, as eight sophomores graduate.
Part of this year’s team is six from last year’s team, guards, Jalen Gilmore, Lake, Redix, Sequan Walker, Jesus Zesati, and forward Chima Wami. The six players will go out with a 49-10 overall record at ELAC.
ELAC Head Coach John Mosley now has an overall record of 112 wins and 38 losses, as his fifth season comes to an end.
