The men were on fire tonight, taking an early lead and holding on through both halves to upset (previously SCC undefeated) East LA (69-65) before a packed Sports Center. Sophomore Isaiah McCullough opened scoring for the Panther men with a three and finished the game with 15 points. Manu Oulai added 13, Anthony Garcia 11.
Jeff Klein: "This was a big win over the #1 ranked team in the south. There was great energy both on and off the court in the Sports Center tonight. We played hard and stayed together."
The men travel to Mt SAC Wednesday night. The Mounties upset LA Trade Tech tonight 84-75 for their third straight win at home. Trade Tech's loss puts the Panthers in SCC North 2nd place, 1 game behind ELAC. Mt SAC, Trade Tech, and Pasadena are battling for 3rd. The Panthers return home next Friday to play Rio Hondo at 5pm.
