Shoreline Men’s Hoops Defeat CBC & Pierce in Bulldog Classic


December 11, 2017



This weekend the Shoreline Men’s Basketball team took their talents to Bellevue College as BC hosted their annual Bulldog Classic Tournament. The Phin’s were matched up in game one versus defending champ Walla Walla Community College. The Phin’s down 13 at half chipped away at the Walla Walla lead to eventually make it close but lose 94-82. Terrell Brown led scores with 38 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. Backcourt mate Darnell Barry finished with 15 points, 1 rebound, 3 assists and 2 steals. The dynamic duo had quite the tournament. For Brown he averaged 31 points over the course of the weekend, Barry averaged 16.6. The duo have been as productive as any guard tandem in the NWAC all year. In game 2 the Phin’s took on another team from the East Region, Columbia Basin. The Dolphins defeated CBC 91-78. Another big game for the killer B’s (Brown and Barry). For Brown it was a double-double (double digits in two separate statistical categories) as his stat line read 32 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. For Barry he was a rebound short of a double-double going 22 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and a block. Yegor Gorbenko had a nice game as well finishing with 13 points. In the third and final game of the weekend the Phin’s took on Pierce for the second time this season and again defeated them 74-71 (also defeated Pierce 116-63 on 12/1/17). Terrell Brown, Jr. again was game high in points with 23, 8 rebounds, 9 assists, 4 steals and a block. Darnell Barry was once again productive with 13 points, 2 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 assists. Gorbenko chipped in with another 13 points, sinking three 3 pointers. The Phin’s currently have a record of 4-3 heading into Crossover play next weekend.

What makes Terrell Brown, Jr and Darnell Barry such an unstoppable backcourt tandem is that they just aren’t players who can score. They fill up the stat sheet with assists, steals and rebounds as well. Being able to get all that production from your backcourt takes pressure of the rest of the team, leading the way from a production and also leadership standpoint.

Terrell Brown, Jr. leads the entire NWAC in scoring through 7 games averaging 31.1 points per game and also averages 4 steals per game also slotting him #1.

The Dolphins hit the road again this time further east to North Idaho to take part in the NIC Crossover Tournament. Up first for the Phin’s is a rematch on Sunday December 17th versus Highline College.
