SCC Men’s Basketball Drops Heartbreaker in Overtime to Edmonds CC

The Shoreline Community College men’s basketball team dropped a overtime game to Edmonds CC on Saturday at the Edmonds CC gym.

SCC was behind 37-29 at half, but fought back to outscore Edmonds 47-39 to force the game into overtime. But in OT, ECC outscored SCC 8-4 to win the game. The loss dropped Shoreline into 5th place in the NWAACC Northern Division, 1 game behind Whatcom CC and Bellevue College who are tied for 4th place. The top four teams in the division in the region go to the NWAACC Championship in March. The loss was even bigger for SCC, as Edmonds was winless in the region going into the game and SCC had just upset Whatcom CC, the 4th ranked team in the NWAACC on Wednesday night in the SCC Gym.

Sean Jones was the leading scorer for the Dolphins as he scored 22 points. Alfie Miller had 18 and Joe Bodman dropped 15 in for SCC along with 10 rebounds. Joseph Holifield rounded out the double digit scoring with 10 points. Dion Overstreet was a monster for Edmonds, scoring 42 points, 21 from three point range.

Shoreline is now 10-6 overall, 3-3 in the region. Edmonds is 3-11 overall and 1-5 in the region. SCC heads on the road Wednesday to face Northern Region leader, Peninsula College in Port Angeles, WA. Peninsula is 6-1 in the region and 11-5 overall. SCC returns home on Saturday afternoon, to face Everett Community College in the final game of the first half of the region schedule, game time is 4:00 PM in the SCC Gym.
