  • Comet center Darius Workman jumps up for a layup during CCC's game against Los Medanos College in the Gymnasium on Feb. 12. Qing Huang

The men's basketball team cruised past Los Medanos College (15-9 overall, 6-7 in the Bay Valley Conference) 82-69 on Wednesday in the Gymnasium. Contra Costa College kept its playoff hopes maintaining their lead over the Mustangs.
The Comets (14-11 overall, 8-5 BVC) and the Mustangs kept the score to a one-point deficit, but it wasn't until Comet guard Armein Outing was fouled on the three-point line by Mustangs guard Patrick Lefiti that started the Comets run to take the lead with 9:25 left in the first half.
With 4:36 left in the first half Outing drove the ball up the middle, to make a lay-up through two Mustang defenders to bring the score to 20-23.
"I've been doing this for years, so if I see two defenders on me, I'm going to scoop it in for the score." Outing said with a smirk.
The Comets ended the half with a 39-29 lead, and kept a double-digit lead the whole second half. When the Comets visited LMC on Jan. 14 they lost 82-70, but that was not the case this evening. CCC out rebounded the Mustangs in this game. The Comets defense was forcing a lot of LMC turnovers with 20.
"We (the Comets) played better as a team this time against LMC," Comet guard Davion Mize said about the second matchup against the Mustangs. "This is the best game we (the Comets) played as a team this whole season."
The Comets next game is on the road at College Of Marin on Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m.
Comet center Darius Workman had a quiet first half, however, he came through in the second half with 10 rebounds and 8 points. Workman went 6-15 on shot attempts, but had 12 points overall by the end of the game.
"I just had to do what the big man does, and get points for my team." Workman said post game. "It was ok, but I have to do better, I have to step it (my skills) up."
CCC men's basketball coach Miguel Johnson said, "We have to get defensive stops, and baskets, we have some points coming off the bench. When we can get our team to contribute to scoring we are a tough team to beat."
