The South Puget Sound basketball teams continue their busy week when they host Centralia in doubleheader action at the SPSCC Gym.
The South Puget Sound women knocked off Grays Harbor on Monday night to move to 2-3 in the NWAACC West thanks to double-digit scoring from four Clippers. Meanwhile, the Centralia women come into the game at 3-1 in the NWAACC West and are coming off of their first league loss, a 55-48 defeat at Highline on Monday.
It has been a struggle for both the SPSCC and Centralia men this season with just two wins between the two programs. The Clippers are 1-4 in the NWAACC West while Centralia is 1-3. Northwest Christian’s Zach Carras is on the Centralia roster, but has played in only five games and not since January 2nd. He is averaging 18 points in the games that he played.
