Yellowjackets sting Clan men

Poor shooting and weakness off the backboards cost the SFU Clan men's basketball team a 94-74 defeat to the Montana State University-Billings Yellowjackets on Thursday.

After a seesaw first half from which the Yellowjackets emerged with a 39-38 advantage, they pulled away early in the second half and never looked back.

"We played well in the first half, but the second half we didn't hit the shots," said SFU guard John Bantock in a release. "We didn't rebound as well as we should have and just gave them too many second chances."

Justin Brown led all Clan scorers with 21 points, including all six of his shots from the free throw line.

The loss was the Clan's 14th against just three wins in Great Northwest Athletic Conference games this season.

They close out their campaign tonight, when they'll host the Seattle Pacific University Falcons in the West Gym. Graduating seniors Brown, Connor Lewis and Zack Frehlick will be honoured before the game.
