Playoffs come and go

The San Jose City College men’s basketball season came to an end Friday, Feb. 28 after the team traveled north to Butte College and lost 77-65.

“It didn’t come out as expected,” Coach Percy Carr said.

The Jaguars fell short to the Roadrunners in their first and last playoff game. Heading into the game, the team was ranked as the ninth seed with Butte being the eighth.

The Roadrunners had a 14 point lead going into halftime and did not look back, holding the score at 44-30.

SJCC outscored the Roadrunners in the second half by two points, but that was not enough to win the game.

Sophomore forward Andre Russell lead the jags with 31 points and 11 rebounds against Butte.

Sophomore point guard Bobby Gray added 14 points with four rebounds and four steals in the campaign. Freshman Stevenaire Young finished with five rebounds and two steals for the final totals of the game.

Carr said the team is ready for next year.
