In front of a large and vocal crowd, several four year college coaches, and UW freshman standout Tony Wroten, the Shoreline Community College Men's Basketball Team dropped a tough 108-100 game to the Peninsula College Pirates.

SCC pushed out to a 56-44 lead at half-time and went up by 18 early in the second half (64-46), but the Pirates outscored the Dolphins by 20 in the second half (64-44) and went on to win by 8.

Shoreline was called for 23 fouls in the game, compared to 4 for Peninsula, as the Pirates went to the foul-line 38 times in the game, making 26, while SCC got 6 foul shots in the game. SCC had two technical fouls called on the team as well.

Freshman Earlie Dixon scored 20 points for SCC, followed by fellow freshman Will Acromite with 15, sophomores Joe Bodman added 14 and Kelly Hong, 12. Sophomore Avery Scharer, playing on a bad ankle had 17 assists and 14 rebounds from the point guard position but could only score 8 points on the night, with limited ability to drive the lane on a bad ankle.

Peninsula dominated the boards, getting 61 rebounds compared to 41 for SCC and SCC turnovers led to 36 PC points.

Shoreline is now 16-10 on the year, 10-5 in the NWAACC Northern Region. SCC needs to win Wednesday at Bellevue College to assure a NWAACC Championship Tournament bid or have North Seattle Community College lose one of its two remaining games. SCC plays at Bellevue at 7:30 PM.

Peninsula is 21-4 on the season and 11-3 in the region. The Pirates clinched NWAACC Championship bid with the win tonight. PC’s DeShauen Freeman and J.T. Terrell both scored 23 for the Pirates while Dudley Ewell added 22.
