BULLDOGS MEN TAKE TWO AT HOME
The Bellevue College men's basketball team hosted two home games last week to wrap up the first half of North region play. On Monday, Jan. 30, the Bulldogs played the Tritons of Edmonds Community College. Bellevue relied on great team defense to hold Edmonds to just 37% shooting from the field. The Bulldogs grabbed 12 offensive rebounds and had a season low with only 13 turnovers in the game. The extra possessions combined with solid defense led to a 73-52 Bulldog victory. Bellevue was led by Keaton Hayenga who recorded another double-double with 25 points and 12 rebounds. Eric Turner turned in one of his best performances of the year with 11 points, five assists and only two turnovers in 35 minutes of play while Rex Nelson rounded out the double-digit scorers with 16 points.
Two days later the Bulldogs finished their run of six games in 12 days by hosting the Rangers of Olympic College. In a tightly contested match-up, the Bulldogs were able to do just enough to come away with a squeaker 74-71 victory. Hayenga again led the Bulldogs with 25 points and 15 rebounds. Nelson also turned in a double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Freshman Andrew Squiers scored 10 points.
With their two victories the Bulldogs take their record to 7-2 in North region play, 17-2 on the year. Bellevue is now ranked 4th in the NWAACC Coaches Poll joining two other North region teams in the top four. Bellevue travels to Mount Vernon on Wednesday, Feb. 8, to take on the Cardinals of Skagit Valley College (2-8, 6-12) at 7 p.m., then the Bulldogs will host North Seattle Community College Saturday, Feb. 11, with a 6 p.m. tip-off.
