Hancock Men Strong Late in Win Over Oxnard

Marcellus Garrick scored a career-high 23 points, including 13 in the second half, to help the Allan Hancock College men’s basketball team defeat Oxnard 72-64 Saturday inside Joe White Memorial Gymnasium. The Bulldogs won their second straight game to improve to 2-3 in Western State Conference action and 12-13 overall. The Condors dropped to 4-14 on the season and 2-3 in league.

After Jakari McClain hit a jumper to tie it at 55-55 with 5:41 to play, Garrick made two buckets and two free throws to help Hancock rebuild a six-point lead at 64-58 with 2:28 to play. Garrick went 7-for-11 from the field overall, including a 4-for-6 effort from 3-point range. The sophomore also sank all six of his free throws to go with four assists and one steal.

Sophomore Kevawn Lord added 19 points behind a 7-for-12 effort from the field. Lord added eight rebounds. Freshman Erik Kinnebrew had 14 points, eight rebounds, and five assists for the Bulldogs.

Deon Whiteside came off the bench to score seven points, while Marc Fabricius had eight points and three rebounds.

Hancock shot 26-for-50 overall from the field or 52 percent. They went 5-for-10 from 3-point range, and 15-for-22, or 68 percent, from the free-throw line.

The Condors shot 47 percent from the field, hit 6-of-18 from -3point range, and made just five of their 11 free throws.

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!
