CCC Men and Women lose North District Playoff Championship Games

CCC Men and Women lose North District Playoff Championship Games

The Central Community College men’s basketball team lost to Dakota County Technical College, 71-59, in the North District Playoff Championship on Saturday at Raider Fieldhouse.

The Raiders built a 10-point in the first half and went on to lead 33-26 at halftime. CCC put together a 13-point lead midway through the second half when it went on an extended scoring drought. The Blue Knights took advantage and took the lead with four minutes remaining en route to the 12-point win.

Tre’vion Crawford led the Raiders with 18 points, while Nathan Frost scored 11 points.

“It’s disappointing to lose,” said CCC head coach John Ritzdorf. “It hurts. It should hurt, but we have nothing to hang our heads about. This group accomplished a lot that hasn’t been done here in a long time or ever in some cases. We’re not going to let one bad half of basketball diminish what we’ve been able to do this year.”

The Raiders finished the 2019-20 season with a mark of 20-11.

 

The Central Community College women’s basketball team lost to United Tribes Technical College, 77-53, in the North District Playoff Championship on Saturday in Bismarck, N.D.

The hometown Thunderbirds set the tone early with a 26-3 advantage at the end of the first period. UTTC went on to lead 48-18 at halftime and went on to the victory and the NJCAA National Tournament.

Monica Brooks logged a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds, while Jasmine Williams finished with 15 points.

“UTTC came out and played fast and shot the ball well,” said CCC head coach Billy Perkins (pictured top row center). “We just could never seem to get it going on both ends of the floor.”

With the loss, the Raiders finished the 2019-20 season with a mark of 14-14.

“I am very proud of our team and how it kept playing hard each and every game,” said Perkins. “This team has done some great things and I’m very proud of each player. They have set a standard both on and off the court for future CCC teams.”
