Just a few days removed from its first victory of the season, the Gavilan College men’s basketball team had a bit of momentum as it headed north for an appearance at the Skyline Tournament in San bruno on Friday and Saturday.
Though the Rams had their moments, defeats to Marin 65-49 and host Skyline 73-66 were the end results.
“We played both teams really well,” coach Tito Addison said. “It seems like this season if it’s not one thing it’s the other. Not have a center or a true point guard makes it tough. Teams know we struggle bringing the ball up the floor.
“But the kids played very well and we got a lot better this weekend bringin’ the ball and getting into the flow of things.”
Friday’s high scorer was Jordan Ramirez, who made 7 of 17 from the floor, including 2 of 3 from beyond the arc, and finished with 16 points.
Ramirez followed Friday’s performance with 12 points on Saturday. But it was Derek Jensen who posted a season-high 23 points on 7-of-9 shooting to pace all Rams’ scorers. Also on Saturday, Andrew Belonia had nine points and both Stanley Morgan and Matt Johnson contributed seven points.
Gavilan hosts Columbia at 3 p.m. on Wednesday.
