Bulldogs Top Santa Barbara in Overtime Thriller

SANTA MARIA, Calif. - The Allan Hancock College men's basketball team got back on track on Wednesday evening with a thrilling league victory inside of the Joe White Memorial Gymnasium. | BOX SCORE

After a back-and-forth battle throughout regulation, a crucial layup from Amari Stroud sealed the victory for the Bulldogs (9-8, 1-1 WSC) in the final 20 seconds of action as they topped Santa Barbara City College in overtime. As a team, Hancock shot a red-hot 52 percent from the floor despite a cold night of shooting from distance. Coach Aye's group also won the rebounding battle at a hefty 50-27 margin and limited the Vaqueros (5-12, 0-3 WSC) to just four second chance tallies. 

Stroud led the squad with a stat-stuffing performance that featured 21 points, five blocks, five rebounds, and four assists. Bryce Craver registered a season-high of 11 rebounds while chipping in nine points and dishing out four assists. Collin Oestereich added a career-high of 15 points off the bench while grabbing four boards while Shawn Kelly narrowly missed out on a double-double after a nine-point, nine-rebound performance. 

Up next for the Bulldogs is a trip to Ventura College on Monday, January 24th. Tip-off for the contest is scheduled for 5 PM in Ventura, Calif.
