City College won their fourth game in a row, winning nine out of their last 10, defeating the Skyline College Trojans 88-49 Feb. 15.

City College (18-9, 9-2 Coast-North) was not shy about pulling the trigger from beyond the arc, as they were able to hit three-pointers consistently in the game.

It was an all-around team effort with five players reaching double digits in points, led by freshman guard Franeka Hall who tallied 23 points.

The Rams moved the ball unselfishly and worked their way to a 20-point lead halfway through the first half, finding the open shot time and time again.

“We’ve got a lot of shooters,” City College head coach Jamie Hayes said.

Everyone in a Trojans jersey struggled to get good looks besides sophomore forward Bianca Hussein, who was able to get some easy shots in a few stretches.

“Everyone can shoot, so it’s hard to defend,” Hussein said.

City College was able to put the Trojans offense into a stagnant pace, with help from their energetic and vocal bench.

“If we can stay healthy, then we’re definitely ready. We’ve been battling injuries throughout the year, so if we get healthy it could make a big difference for us,” Hayes said.

City College will play their last game of the regular season against Las Positas College in Livermore on Feb. 23 at 3 p.m.
