THE COLLEGES : SCC Scores Early, Often in 120-75 Win

Southern California College recorded its second-largest margin of victory in school history with a 120-75 victory over host Christ College of Irvine Friday night in a Golden State Athletic Conference game.

The Vanguards’ 45-point margin was 5 points fewer than in their 132-67 victory Jan. 7. That also was against Christ College Irvine.

SCC jumped to a 10-point lead in the first 6 minutes, increased it to 27 points at the half and pulled away from there.


“We tried to do some things different,” Christ College Irvine Coach David Wild said. “We didn’t stop, we played them, but they’re good.”

SCC (15-2 overall, 4-0 in conference play) put in its reserves 10 minutes into the game, but that didn’t seem to make much difference. SCC’s Kyle Lundy led all scorers with 26 points and 6 assists in about 20 minutes.

“We tried to pull back and work on some man-on-man (defense) and some offensive things we’re having trouble with,” SCC Coach Bill Reynolds said. “They wouldn’t do it, they just kept the pressure on. That’s our style.

SCC’s Terry Scruggs scored 24 points, pulled down 10 rebounds and made 4 steals. Albert Gay led Christ College Irvine with 19 points. SCC outrebounded Christ College Irvine, 36-18.
