Not Best Game for #1…Good Enough for Double Digit Win

Posted: December 29, 2015 in AVC Men's Basketball, AVC Men's BB 2015-16, Pre-Conference

AVC 83  Mendocino 68

After a Christmas break, AVC looked rusty especially on the defensive end of the court.  To make up for that weakness, the Marauders shooting was solid and especially stunning at the free throw line, 19-21(90.5%), 53% overall and 38% from beyond the arc. 

Joseph JJ Moorer, shooting guard, pounded in 26 points shooting a red-hot 67% from the floor(including 67% from beyond the arc.)

Chris Martin, PG, led the team with five assists, two steals, nine points and three rebounds.

Brandon Wade, Shooting Guard/Wing, did his best work leading his team in rebounds(7) and eight points(shooting 57% from the floor).

HAYWARD – The Antelope Valley College men’s basketball team showed why it is No. 1 in the state as the Marauders defeated Mendocino College 83-68 on Monday night in the Chabot College Tournament.

The Marauders (13-0) pulled out to a 46-29 lead at halftime en route to the victory, shooting 58 percent from the floor and 19-for-21 from the free throw line.

J.J. Moore led AVC with 26 points and was 8-for-12 from 3-point territory. Cory Dollarhide scored 13 points, Chris Martin had nine with five assists and Brandon Wade knocked in eight points while grabbing seven rebounds as the Marauders look to defend their tournament championship by playing in the semifinals today against Cosumnes River College.

"We struggled a little bit on the back board tonight," AVC coach John Taylor said. "We didn’t too well at blocking out. I think we have to do better. We shot well. We just got to do a better job on defense."
