The Cardinal Men's Basketball team had a tremendous run in the 39th Annual Skagit Valley College Turkey Tournament this weekend and came away with the Championship trophy with a win over perennial powerhouse Tacoma Community College.
Skagit won their first game over Portland CC with a late 3-pointer by Zane McDonald. The Cardinals then matched up with Green River on the second day and fell behind by 22 points in the first half. Skagit then came back to take the lead with 5 minutes remaining and won it again with another 3 as time expired, this time by Dalton Daniels, to give Skagit a 2 point victory. In the Championship game it was another hard fought battle as it again came down to the final seconds with Skagit holding on to a 3-point win over the Titans.
Dalton Daniels and Isaac Ladines were named to the All-Tournament team, and Riley Newman was named the Tournament MVP.
Ladines had 38 points and 8 blocked shots for the tournament
Daniels had 30 points and 10 assists for the tournament
Newman had 36 points and 19 rebounds and 12 assists for the tournament
Congratulations to 1st year Head Coach Dick Freier and Assistant Coach Todd Hinderman on the Championship win.
Skagit improved to 3-1 on the season and will travel to Wenatchee for a game on Saturday, December 1st. The next Cardinal home game is Friday, December 7th as they host Northwest Indian College at 7PM.
