The Shoreline Community College basketball teams play at rival Edmonds Community College on Saturday. The Lady Dolphins face ECC at 5:00 PM and the men’s teams square off at 7 pm.

The SCC Women’s Basketball Team enters the game with a 2-19 record, 1-12 in the NWAACC Northern Region. First year coach Alisa Scott has made improvements to the team but the Lady Dolphins are suffering through of a season of injury, as two starters were lost early in the year and the team had only one proven player left, Ana Haberman, to begin the season. Freshman walk-on Lynsey Sandum has developed well after joining the team late but no other Lady Dolphin has been able to become a scoring threat. Haberman leads the region in scoring and is second in the NWAACC conference, averaging 21.50 points per game. Sandum averages 10.71 points a game and has scored 15 or more points in 7 of the last 8 games.

The Lady Tritons of Edmonds CC enters the game with a 9-12 overall record, 7-6 in the region and they defeated the Lady Dolphins 80-55 in January at SCC.

The SCC Men’s basketball team is on a roll, with a 17-4 overall record and 11-2 in the region. The Dolphins are in first place in the NWAACC Northern Region by two games with three games left to play. SCC has won 4 games in a row and can clinch at least a tie for first place in the region with a win on Saturday night at Edmonds. The Dolphins have turned their program around after being 6-21 in 2008-09 with an 0-16 league record. 2nd year coach Butch Estes recruited well in his first full class of players and has the SCC team on the verge of winning its first Northern Region Championship in 7 years. Jesse Vaughan and Shawn West lead the team with 16.40 and 15.58 points per game averages.

Shoreline defeated Edmonds 86-80 in overtime at SCC in January in a hotly contested game. The ECC squad is 9-11 on the year and 6-7 in the region and is considered to have some of the best NCAA Division I prospects in the region.
