Both local junior colleges had mostly positive results in their early season conference schedules.
Chabot College men's basketball team bounced back from their loss last week to Ohlone by whipping visiting Foothill College 69-54. The potent Gladiator offense spread the wealth around, with four players scoring in double digits: Jourdan DeMuynck (16 points), Kurtis Ong (14), Howie Manzo (10) and Jacob Noisat (10).
Chabot's women's team suffered their first loss in Coast Conference North play, falling 69-66 to Foothill College at home. Stellar offensive performances by Karina Caines (15 points), Sharae Davis (14 points), Dominique Oglesby (13) and Charnay Bell (10) weren't enough to put the Gladiators over the top, and at week's end, Chabot is at 2-1 in conference play, 12-7 overall.
Ohlone College men's team had an up-and-down week, starting off the week with a victorious road trip to Las Positas College in Livermore. Lavon Gray led the Renegades with 23 points in their 63-59 win. Geoff Hartman kicked in nine in the win.
Unfortunately, Ohlone's three-game winning streak in the conference was snapped later in the week (Jan. 14) with a 78-64 loss to City College of San Francisco.
Ohlone College women's team rebounded from their first conference loss (a Jan. 8, 70-54, defeat at the hands of CCSF) with two straight wins - a 42-41 squeaker on the road at De Anza College, and a 58-49 home victory over Mission College. Coach Julia Allender's squad sits at 3-1 in CCN play.
