stretch in BCCC loss
WYE MILLS The Skipjacks started strong but faded down the stretch Monday afternoon in an 80-55 men’s basketball loss to Baltimore City Community College.
Rockeem Harris scored 10 of his game-high 22 points as Chesapeake College broke out to an 18-4 lead. The Panthers, however, pulled within 32-30 at the half and scored the first 11 points of the second half to take the lead for good. BCCC broke the game open with a 32-10 run after Chesapeake’s six-player squad had pulled within 48-45 with a run of its own.
"It’s been kind of tough," said Chesapeake head coach Reggie Williams of playing with a one-person bench. "We’ve been playing three games a week Monday, Wednesday, Friday which doesn’t give much of a chance to recharge. We can get shots and score points, but the defense has been our weakness. It’s like we’re stuck in quicksand a lot of the time."
Carlos Smith scored 14 points, John Williams and Byron Westmoreland added 13 each, and Zafir Williams scored 12 for the balanced Panthers (8-10 overall, 3-6 Maryland JuCo). Justin Mays (14 points) and Mike Turner (12 points) joined Harris in double figures to lead Chesapeake (6-10, 2-5).
The Skipjacks play at Hagerstown Community College (10-7, 5-2) Wednesday at 6 p.m.
