(Pasadena, CA) The Mt. SAC Men's Basketball team was led by four players in double figures, with sophomore guard Nick Brown leading the way with 17 points, en route to an, 80-72, South Coast Conference North win over Pasadena City College Wednesday night.
The win keeps the Mounties (15-9, 5-2) within a game of first-place Chaffey College.
In the first half Mt. SAC struggled early, even down by 15 at one point, but managed to only trail by nine at halftime, 38-29.
The Mounties had a big second half outscoring the Lancers by 17 points for the eight-point victory.
Sophomore guard Ryon O'Quinn (4-8 FG, 7-9 FT, 16 pts.), sophomore guard Charlie Evans, IV (6-8 FT, 4 asst., 3 steals, 12 pts.) and freshman guard Josh Johnson (4-5 FG, 5 RB, 10 pts.) led the Mounties.
Brown made 6 of 9 field goals, which included 5 of 8 from beyond the arc and grabbed six boards and had a steal.
Mt. SAC out-rebounded the Lancers, 43-37, with O'Quinn grabbing a game-high 10 boards.
"The guys were able to pick it up offensively and on the defensive end in the second half," Mt. SAC coach Clark Maloney said.
