The men’s basketball team will enter the upcoming season with only a handful of players that have experience on the Hutto-Patterson Gymnasium’s hardwood floor. The Lancers will be without some key pieces of last season’s team. Sophomore guard Dejon Williams was a large part of the team’s offense and averaged 15 points per game shooting 41 percent from the field, but he won’t return.
The Lancers’ men’s basketball team won their first home game of the season with a 69-61 victory over El Camino College on Wednesday.
Although the PCC men’s basketball team went winless during the San Bernardino Valley Alvin Hunter Classic, the young team proved they could play with some of the best teams in the state.
The Lancers’ men’s basketball team kicked off the 2014-15 season with a fourth place finish during the Ventura College We Play Hard Tournament last week.
Youth and inexperience has never discouraged Lancers’ men’s basketball head coach Michael Swanegan. Despite only returning two sophomores from last season’s team, the head coach heading into his eighth year expects another competitive group from this year’s team.
