MEN'S BASKETBALL: Short-handed Cardinals still win

12/08/2018

Despite several key players playing reduced minutes because of injuries, North Idaho College was still able to roll past Monterey Peninsula 94-73 Friday night in the San Jose City College Classic.

Alphonso Anderson, James Carlson and Nate Pryor all were battling through an assortment of ailments but reserves picked up the slack.

The Cardinals saw the Lobos erase an 11-point halftime lead within the first 5 minutes of the second half. But, Sophomore Ray Quan Evans and Freshman Emmitt Taylor III each scored 12 second-half points to right the Cardinal ship.

Evans finished with 21 points, Taylor 15. Freshman Ismael Valdez came off the bench for his best offensive performance of year, tossing in 12 points while Sophomore Jared Greene added 10.

“We were a little banged up and it was nice to see the reserves step it up,” said Head Coach Corey Symons. “They’ll have to do even better tonight.”

That’s because the Cardinals face the top-ranked team in California, The City College of San Francisco. Catch all the action on our You Tube channel at Nicathletics.com beginning with the Corey Symons Pre-Game Show at 5:50 and the tip-off at 6.
