The Shoreline Community College Men’s Basketball Team had high hopes for the NWAACC Men’s Basketball Championship, but those dreams hit rock bottom on Saturday in Kennewick, WA as the Dolphins dropped their opening game to Green River Community College 80-76 in a game that SCC could never get over the top and dropped into the consolation bracket.

Green River’s Chris Plooy scored 29 points and the Gators converted 25 of 38 foul shots to seal the victory. Shoreline stayed close the entire game, but only hit 12 of 20 free throws and had 22 turnovers to slow down the high scoring offense. Green River led 41-39 at half and push the lead to 8 several times in the second half, but never could put away the Dolphins. Roshawn West led SCC with 14 points, while Sean Jones had 12 and Spencer Wozeniak and Jesse Vaughan scored 11 each to help keep the game close.

On Sunday in the Consolation Bracket, the Dolphins ran into a hot shooting Spokane team that hit 15 of 35 three point shots to led the Bigfoot to a 90-71 pounding of the Dolphins. Spokane only hit 5 of 30 three pointers the day before in a loss to Clackamas Community College, but at times on Sunday, seemed like they could not miss from the behind the three point line. Spokane led 42-30 at half and never looked back in the second half.

Alfred Miller-Soukasen scored 16 for Shoreline, followed by Sean Jones and Jesse Vaughan with 14 each.

Shoreline finished the season, 19-7 overall. The team only had two sophomores and returns 7 freshmen for next season.
