Late Game Comeback not Enough for the Rams

Fresno City College men’s basketball Rams came up short against College of Sequoias Giants on Feb. 21, at the FCC gym.

The gym was full on all sides of the seats with fans showing their support before the game started.

It took a while for both teams to score but the Rams were the first to get on the board, but that wouldn’t last long as the Giants were quick to tie up.

The Giants were the first to score a three pointer as they continued to push in their early lead.

Closing out the first half, the Giants led 24-15.

It might have been played at the Rams home, but the Sequoia fans were just as, if not louder, than the home fans.

Whether it was the pitch of the screams or the loud feedback, the fans would give when a foul was committed, the Sequoia fans were here to show what their team was made of.

The Giants got a comfortable early lead that was a sign of things to come, but the Rams showed moments of hope as the second half came underway.

Rams James Presscott #5, had a great play where it looked like everyone was going against him.

He slipped and tripped, but still managed to score and make the home crowd go the loudest it has been all night, pushing the Rams closer to the Giants score.

As the Rams looked to come back, the opposing crowd’s “defense” chants were almost defining.

The second half was where the Rams were finally playing their best of the game and it was close but the Rams just couldn’t catch up and in the end the Giants won 54-43.

As the buzzer hit, the crowd went wild for their team’s deserved win.

Not the best way for the Rams to play their last home game of the season, but their final season game will be against Columbia Community College on Feb, 23.
