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.
After a 10 year drought, the Lancers men’s basketball team received a No. 12 seed for the upcoming Southern California playoffs.
Despite a game high 28 points from sophomore forward Taj Spencer, the Lancers were unable to overcome an early first half deficit against Mt. SAC
Snapping a three-game losing streak, the Lancers (18-8, 6-4) overcame a 12-point second half deficit to defeat the Huskies 73-72.
The Lancers (17-6, 5-2) were hampered by foul trouble the entire game, forcing head coach Michael Swanegan to go to the bench early in the first half.
Ranked No. 12 in Southern California, the Lancers hope to rejoin the state top 20 poll after breaking the top 20 earlier in the season.
Freshman guard Adrian Miles and Jeffrey Dockett were instrumental down the stretch to help the Lancers record their fourth straight conference victory.
