After losing by two points to Chabot College on Feb. 1, the City College Rams men’s basketball team came home 2 days later and blasted Skyline College 108-76.
The Rams kept Skyline at arm’s length throughout the first two quarters, leading by as much as a dozen points and finishing the first half ahead 54-45.
Rams CJ Hardy, a 6’2” freshman from Los Angeles who was top scorer as a reserve in the recent loss to Chabot, started against Skyline and was again tops with 23 points.
At the heart of the Rams’ game was impeccable defense. While Skyline attempted to cut through Ram lines to confuse players, the Rams stayed on track. Maintaining proper rotations, they gave Skyline few openings to break through. With keen spatial awareness City College perfectly thwarted Skyline at the three-point line.
Taking no risks after their close loss at Chabot the Rams hammered out a convincing 108-76 victory.
