Today (11/20): Young Clippers Host Tritons
New South Puget Sound head coach Aaron Landon has assembled an all new team composed of 12 freshmen that will get a tough early season test tonight when they face NWAACC championship runners-up Edmonds on the SPSCC campus at 7:00 PM.
The Clippers are coming off a ten point loss in their opener to the Concordia University JV squad but got a good look at their young team. Joseph Johnson hit seven three pointers to lead the way with 26 points, Austin Bonds chipped in 21, Slanblaytee Kaye chipped in 12 with seven assists and Olympia grad Michael Champlin racked up ten points.
Edmonds lost their two best players from last season, Shaquielle McKissic, who transferred to Arizona State, and Ricardo Maxwell, now at Western Washington, and has just two returners from last year’s squad.
