Andrew Squiers scored 14 points, with added six rebounds, and Reggie Clinton scored 10 points in only 16 minutes.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Bulldogs welcomed the Trojans of Everett Community College. Coming into the game, Bellevue was tied with Everett and Peninsula College for third place in the North Region standings. Sensing the importance of the matchup with Everett, the Bulldogs jumped out to an early lead in the opening moments of the game, but Bellevue lost that early momentum and struggled the rest of the game to get it back. Everett continued their run throughout the half finishing the first stanza of play with a 46-33 lead. In the second half, Bellevue was down by as many as 20 points, and although they were able to close the gap to eight points on two separate occasions, the Bulldogs never fully recovered. Bellevue eventually fell to Everett by a final score of 95-80. Bellevue was out-rebounded 36-22 on the night and shot only 33% from the three-point line. Bellevue was led in scoring by Squiers and Greer who scored 20 points each. Clinton added 11 points, and freshman Andrew Holloway provided a spark off the bench with 11 points of his own.
Bellevue now takes on an uphill battle to reach the NWAACC tournament in March. The Bulldogs are currently tied with Peninsula College for the fourth and final spot.
