Men’s Basketball Struggles Early

"Joshua Freelove"

Godfrey- The Lewis and Clark Men’s Basketball Team lost just seven games last year on their way to a fourth place finish in the national tournament.  This year, the Trailblazers have already lost eight of their first nine games and have been struggling early on in the season.

“We’ve been going up and down all season.  Even though we’re losing, I still feel like we’re going up and down. It seems like we have spurts where we get it then we don’t and things like that,” said University of Toledo transfer Joshua Freelove.

The “ups” are starting to become more frequent though.  After losing six of their games by over ten points, the Trailblazers came back in the second half of a match-up against Lincoln College to lose by just a single point.

“We looked like an NCAA Division 1 team in the second half of that game.  We came back from being down by eleven and outscored them by ten in the second half of that game,” said LCCC Head Coach Deon Thomas.

With the team starting to gel, December is looking to be an interesting month for the Trailblazers.
