The SCC Men's Basketball Team clinched the #1 seed from the Northern Region for NWAACC Men's Basketball Championship that starts on March 6 in the Tri-Cities, WA. with their 75-70 victory over Edmonds Community College on Saturday night at Edmonds CC.

Shoreline has a two game lead with two games to play over Whatcom Community College. But SCC has defeated WCC twice this season and has the tie-breaker over them because of the Dolphins victories.

Against Edmonds, Alfie Miller-Soukasen led the Dolphins with 18 points, hitting 5 of 9 three point shots. Shawn West and Sean Jones added 17 points each while Jesse Vaughan scored 13 to lead the balanced SCC attack. Shoreline led 38-34 at half-time, but Edmonds came back and took a 5 point lead with about 8 minutes to play, but Shoreline came right back it self and pushed their lead up to 9 points with 2 minutes left, and fought Edmonds comeback off at the end.

Shoreline travels to Peninsula College in Port Angeles on Wednesday night and returns home to play Everett Community College on Saturday to finish the regular season. Shoreline is 18-4 on the season and 12-2 in the region.
