Tigers snap 3-game skid at Southwestern

January 10, 2008
By TIMES-REPUBLICAN STAFF
CRESTON — Julian Beard gave the Marshalltown Community College men’s basketball team a boost off the bench and Marquis Navarre made MCC’s slim lead stick with free throws down the stretch in Wednesday’s 84-78 victory over Southwestern.

Beard scored a season-high 21 points after making six 3-pointers — three in each half. Navarre finished with 14 points behind 8-for-10 free throw shooting. Navarre made six straight free throws in the waning moments to help the Tigers (8-8) snap a three-game losing streak.

Henry White had 18 points and seven rebounds and Luis Valera added 10 points for MCC. Martez Hawkins handed out 11 assists and Navarre had eight more as the Tigers topped Southwestern (8-3) for the second time this season.

MCC’s season-high output came in an 89-86 win over the Spartans Nov. 16 in the North Central Missouri Tournament.

Laurice Ellison was one of four Spartans to score in double figures, leading all players with 24 points. Tyler Raasch added 14 points, Ryckey Harper had 13 and Royce Phillips chipped in 10.

MCC has a week off before hosting Iowa Central Jan. 16.
