Phelps sparks PCC

first_img“I always play aggressive,” Phelps said. “I missed a few shots early but got it going as the game went on.” Phelps scored 13 points to go with a game-high 13 rebounds and four steals. Leading 39-27 at halftime, the Lancers came out firing in the second half. Sophomore Jeanine Deno hit a 3-pointer on the Lancers’ opening possession to increase the lead to 15. With 16 minutes remaining in the game, Deno faked a 3-point shot and completed a risky pass through traffic to Phelps under the basket to give PCC a 44-28 lead. “Our team is peaking at just the right time,” Peron said. “We’re playing our best basketball of the season right now.” PASADENA – Second-seeded Pasadena City College started slowly in the second round of the Southern California Regional playoffs Saturday, scoring just four points in the first five minutes. But the Lancers regrouped and rolled to a 75-52 victory over 18th-seeded Cerritos. “I think some of our players were a little nervous about their first playoff game,” Pasadena coach Joe Peron said. “Once we got comfortable, we started running the offense properly.” Freshman Kieisha Phelps helped jump-start PCC’s struggling offense by scoring inside the paint. With the Lancers trailing 13-9 midway through the first half, Phelps made a spin move and cut to the basket for an easy layup. Then, with three minutes remaining in the half, Pasadena’s full-court pressure led to a steal by Phelps, who again scored an easy basket to help PCC open a 33-25 lead. center_img With the victory all but official, Deno hit two 3-pointers in the final two minutes to finish with a game-high 22 points. She needs 63 more to set the team’s all-time scoring record. The victory gave PCC a school-record 32 victories this season. The Lancers will face Ventura in the second round next Saturday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
