College of the Redwoods had five players score in double figures, led by sophomore James Slade’s 17 points, but it wasn’t enough to overtake Lassen and gain control of second place in the Golden Valley Conference as the Corsairs fell 88-76 in Susanville on Thursday for their second consecutive GVC loss.
CR (4-3 in the GVC and 14-9 overall) now falls behind Lassen (5-2, 18-11) into third place of the GVC standings with only three games remaining.
“We knew the importance of the game, we matched them play-for-play, but when it came down to the end, they made more plays than we did,” said CR head coach Justin Mora. “They made their free throws and we didn’t.”
CR trailed by four with 2 minutes remaining in the contest, but Lassen, which shot 9-for-12 from the charity stripe in the second half, hit most of those free throws down the stretch to seal the win.
“It was a see-saw battle down to the end,” Mora said. “We had to start fouling and they made their free throws.”
CR’s Johnny Shelton finished the game with 13 points, while Mitchell Hash, Justin Heidrick and Jon Losa each scored 12.
The Corsairs, who will play two of their final three games on the road, will be at Feather River on Saturday for a 4 p.m. matchup.
“Well the good news is we don’t have a lot of time to mope about this one because we’ve got to be ready on Saturday,” Mora said. “Even with this loss we’ve still got a shot at making the postseason.”
