By J. LEVI BURNFIN
The Garden City Community College men's basketball team moved to 2-0 on the season with a dominating 99-52 win over Lamar (Colo.) Community College's JV team on Saturday at Colby CC.
"We just played their weaknesses," said head coach Brady Trenkle aout the rout.
The main weakness was a lack of height, and the Busters' post players had a field day, dropping 72 of the 99 points.
Sophomore forward Jade Cathey led the team with 20 points, followed by freshman center Miles Banks' 17, and forwards Dionti Craig's (R-Fr.) 12, Jeremy Wilson's (So.) 12, and Talan Whitaker's (So.) 11.
Banks also had a double-double with 13 boards.
"We beat them something like 42 to 10 on the glass," Trenkle said about his team's rebounding edge.
The Busters do not play again until they host the Pepsi Classic on Friday and Saturday.
The GCCC women's team dropped its second straight to begin the season with an 88-71 loss to Northeast Oklahoma A&M on Saturday at Seward County CC.
"I definitely feel that we improved a great deal," said head coach Nick Salazar. "I want to make sure it doesn't get lost that both teams (we lost to) are very, very good teams."
The Lady Busters were led by sophomore guard Shauqunna Collins, who poured in 23 points and hauled in eight rebounds in the losing effort.
The Lady Busters are on the road again on Tuesday as they travel to Lamar for a 5: 30 p.m. game.
