Bellevue College men’s basketball fell to host Tacoma last night 86-78 in a shootout from long range as the two teams combined for 43 three-point goal attempts. The Bulldogs put up 25 from the arc but converted only 9 as one-shot opportunities doomed BC as Tacoma outrebounded the Bulldogs 53-40. Bellevue fell behind by 10 at 39-29 at halftime and played evenly with the Titans in the second half but could not overcome Tacoma down the stretch.
Marshall Clark, Bellevue’s force down under, was solid again with 21 points on 8-or-11 shooting. The big man from Friday Harbor HS also led the squad with 11 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 blocked shots. Trevon Richmond continued his scoring prowess with 19 points and 5 assists while freshman Christian Lakes had a breakout game by going 3-for-4 as the lone Bulldog with a hot hand from three-point range. The freshman tossed in a season-high 13 points.
Bellevue is now 1-5 on the year and will travel this Friday to reciprocate with host Walla Walla who Bellevue defeated at home last week. Bellevue takes on Columbia Basin at 4:00 p.m on Friday December 6 as part of the Walla Walla Warrior Classic. The two-day tourney features Bellevue, Columbia Basin, host Walla Walla, and Mount Hood (OR) in the four-team round-robin event.
