Hancock Men Can’t Keep Up With Strong East LA Team

Marcellus Garrick scored a team-high 15 points to lead a trio of Bulldogs in double digits, but the Allan Hancock College men’s basketball team dropped an 86-58 decision to East Los Angeles on Friday during opening day of a tournament hosted by Cuesta College. The Bulldogs, who had won three straight games, dropped to 8-10. East LA improved to 10-4.

Garrick made four of his nine shots from the field, and seven of 11 from the free-throw line. He also had five rebounds. The sophomore had nine points in the first half. Hancock trailed 42-26 at the break.

Deon Whiteside scored 10 of his 14 points in the second half. He went 6-for-9 from the field, and hit two of his three free throws.

Freshman Shemarr Parker finished with 11 points on a perfect 3-for-3 effort from the field, including two 3-pointers. Erik Kinnebrew added seven points and two assists.

Overall, Hancock shot 41.7 percent from the field, and made 55 percent of its 27 free-throw attempts. East LA made 57 percent of its shots from the floor.

Five Huskies scored 11 points or more. Roderick Williams led all scorers with 22 points to go with six rebounds and two steals.

The Bulldogs will look to rebound at 3 p.m. on Saturday against San Diego Mesa at Cuesta. They will close the three-day tournament on Sunday at 3 p.m. against El Camino.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
