Men’s Basketball Ends Season in Heartbreaking Fashion

Hood the Phins dominated for stretches of the first half. Shoreline led by as many as 15 points, but struggled to put Mt. Hood away. The Saints closed the gap to 31-36 at the half and eventually took the lead late in the second half.

Mt. Hood extended to an 8 point lead late in the second half that the Phins could never recover from. Shoreline had a last gasp shot to tie at the end but were unable to get a desperation 3 point attempt off in time falling by a score of 74-71. With the loss the Phins’ season comes to an end.
