2/9/2011 - The Feather River College men’s basketball team posted an exciting 97-92 victory over Lassen in front of a home crowd Feb. 2, avenging a five-point loss to Lassen three weeks earlier.
During last week’s rematch in Quincy, FRC fell behind by 18 points early in the game, when Lassen made five straight 3-pointers.
Rather than losing hope, the Golden Eagles remained undeterred and slowly chipped away, crumbling Lassen’s lead to six points by halftime, 52-46.
Through the second half, Lassen made the Golden Eagles work even harder to gain any ground, but FRC finally caught Lassen, taking a one-point lead with 58 seconds left in the game.
Keyshawn Johnson scored 21 points for Quincy in last week’s league win against Hamilton.
The Quincy High School boys’ basketball team captured three straight league wins to improve to 10-7 overall and 3-1 in the Mid-Valley North standings.
In last week’s home game against Hamilton Jan. 25, junior Keyshawn Johnson led the Quincy Trojans with 21 points, including two 3-pointers and five of seven free throws.
Justin Lusk and Devonte Smith each added nine points on the evening.
The match began slowly, as more than four minutes ticked off the clock without a basket, until Quincy senior Zack Vaughn finally opened the scoring and drew a foul to give Quincy a 3-0 lead.
Vaughn finished the game a perfect 3-for-3 from the free-throw line.
Hamilton quickly answered back and outscored Quincy by three baskets to take a 10-7 lead, but then Quincy turned things back around to take a 13-12 lead by the end of the first quarter.
I had planned on writing about ice fishing this week. Reports from both Davis and Frenchman indicate angler success has recently been quite good.
But the recent unseasonably warm weather is melting the ice. The ice is still there, but it is thinner and getting more thin with each warm day.
My advice....unless you really know what you are doing, stay off the ice. Falling through thin ice can ruin your entire day.
