Bellevue College men’s basketball opened up their regular season this weekend on the road and fell to host Lower Columbia 80-70. Bellevue fell behind in the first half as the Red Devils controlled the ball offensively, putting up 40 shots. Although the Bulldogs shot nearly 45% from the field, the squad only had 29 attempts and were down by 8 at halftime.
Freshman guard Trevon Richmond’s hot hand at the free throw line was enough to keep Bellevue even with Lower Columbia in the second half but could not overcome the halftime deficit as the Red Devils held on. Richmond, who finished with a game-high 28 points was 10-for-11 from the line in the second half in his college debut. He also led the ‘dogs defensively with 3 steals. Sophomore Tijohn Rodde, the lone returning starter for Bellevue, added 15 points.
Bellevue travels to Green River this Tuesday November 19 for a 7:00 tipoff.
