SFC Roadrunners Drop Home Game to Link Prep Lions
SFCC (7-12, 1-2 in Region 16) fell to Link Year Prep Lions 74-69 on its home court Saturday night.
Link Year Prep led 13-12 with less than 11 minutes to go in the opening half. The Lions pushed the halftime advantage to 33-27 and opened the second half with an 8-0 run to take a 41-27 lead.
SFCC went to a full-court trapping pressure defense to fight their way back into the game. The Roadrunners cut the deficit to two points on two separate occasions.
"We really didn't have a point guard out there because of an injury," said Roadrunners Head Coach Matt Brown. "That makes a big difference. Hats off to Link Year Prep; they did a good job; they were ready to play, and we weren't."
Bikoy led SFCC in scoring with 19 points. Smith contributed 18 points and led in assists with five and steals with six. Ellis scored 16 points. Gayman pulled down a team-high eight rebounds.
