Men’s Basketball Falls to Highline

After two consecutive nights of hot shooting, Bellevue College’s touch went cold from both the field and the foul line as Highline topped the Bulldogs 87-76 yesterday afternoon at Courter Family Athletic Pavilion. Bellevue, coming off two nights in a row shooting over 50% from the field, went 27-for-72 for a 38% clip. The Bulldogs got chances at the foul line as well as Highline hacked their way to committing 23 personal fouls in the contest (BC had only 14), but could not cash in going 15-for-24.

Bellevue fell behind early 43-30 at halftime with many one-and-done attempts from long distance, going 3-for-18 from three-point range while Highline controlled the boards defensively, outrebounding Bellevue 19-13.

Trevon Richmond led Bellevue with 29 points. He drained 5-of-9 from three-point land as the lone Bulldog who had somewhat of a hot hand yesterday. Freshman Gerald Hood came off the bench to spark Bellevue in the second half with 11 points and 4 offensive rebounds.

Bellevue is now 1-4 overall and has six days off before traveling to Tacoma this Saturday November 30 for a matchup against the Titans at 7:00.
