Men’s Basketball needs to find Mental issues before Playoffs

The Fresno City College Rams Men’s Basketball won the game but the victory was overshadowed by a bench-clearing argument between teams as the game winded down as they continued its dominance in the Central Valley Conference with a 114 – 95 win over Porterville College.

“We still have a lot of things left to grow and most of it’s mental,” said Head Coach Ed Madec.

FCC has rolled through conference play with a 10-1 record securing a California State record 15th league title.

Sophomore guard and leading-candidate for CVC player of the Year BJ Shelton led the Rams with a game-high 26 points on 12 of 16 shooting from the field.

“Winning this last game, now we can focus on playoffs,” said BJ Shelton.

Five Rams scored in double figures.
