Griffins make it 4-in-a-row

(1/30) The Griffins won their fourth straight tonight, downing host Mesa College 67-59. Coach Doug Weber noted the victory as "A great team team effort, as we had three starters miss time during the week with flu symptoms. Our reserves did a great job holding a lead going in to halftime."

Weber noted that reserves Ryan McNichols, Buai Tut, Daren Hawkins (right) and Seth Kluver all made big baskets and grabbed crucial rebounds to stop any momentum by the Olympians to hold on for the victory. Point guard Keith Tunrer was singled out for his ability to control the ball and prevent turnovers during the second half as well. Read More

Griffins turn the Paige

- East County
EL CAJON (1-27-08) -- On a night when the standout shooters from both teams found defenders in their face in the second half, Grossmont College forward TYRONE PAIGE (right) was one of the few to fill in the voids, leading to a Griffins victory.

Paige scored nine of his 15 points in the second half to expand a 1-point halftime lead, while guard KEVIN WOODRUFF collected a team-high 22 points, leading Grossmont past visiting Miramar, 80-71.

The victory snapped the incredible 5-way logjam for second place in the Pacific Coast Conference, leaving the Griffins and MiraCosta as the leaders of the pack behind Imperial Valley, the runaway PCC leaders.

Grossmont's three top shooters combined to hit just 7-of-28 shots from the floor, while forward EMERY MITCHELL didn't release a single field goal attempt in the first half. Still, the Griffins held a 33-32 halftime lead. Read More

Mitchell, Tinsley honored by PCC

- East County
SAN MARCOS (1-22-08) -- Grossmont College basketball players EMERY MITCHELL and AARON TINSLEY were honored among the Pacific Coast Conference athletes of the week, leading the Griffins to a pair of victories.

Mitchell shared the weekly award with Southwestern's Rondu Stevens, while Tinsley, a PCC honoree in November, was listed among the honorable mention.

Mitchell, a 6-foot-7 sophomore forward from Steele Canyon High School , made 8-of-11 field goals, hauled down 11 rebounds and had eight blocks in Grossmont's 70-68 victory over MiraCosta and 90-65 win over San Diego City College.

In the first contest against MiraCosta, he had a big game defensively, blocking seven shots and holding the Spartans' 6-9, 235-pound Lin Chang to five points. Three days later, he limited the Knights' Arcelon Osbourne to two points.

Tinsley, a 6-2 sophomore guard from Helix High School , scored 59 points in two contests with torris shooting numbers: 15-for-24 on field goals, 8-for-10 on 3-pointers, and 21-for 24 on free throws, along with six rebounds, four assists and four steals.

He scored 21 points against MiraCosta and a career-high 38 points in the Griffins victory over San Diego City. Read More

EL CAJON (1-20-08) -- Grossmont College guard AARON TINSLEY shined with one of the best shooting performances in school-history, torching visiting San Diego City College for a career-best 38 points in the Griffins' 90-65 triumph over the Knights.

And with every team above Grossmont -- sans first-place Imperial Valley -- losing in Saturday's (Jan. 19) Pacific Coast Conference action, the Griffins (12-12, 4-4 PCC) catapulted from 7th to 3rd place, resting a half-game behind the second-place Knights (9-11, 4-3 PCC).

Tinsley drained 10-of-13 shots from the floor, including six straight from beyond the arc, in jump-starting Grossmont to a 20-point, first-half lead. Read More

Arabs extend PCC lead, down Griffins

- East County
EL CAJON (1-13-08) -- Facing several physical mismatches, Grossmont College did everything it needed to accomplish defensively to stay in contact with Pacific Coast Conference-leading Imperial Valley College.

The Griffins forced 25 turnovers and kept Arabs shooters off-balance all night, including IVC scoring leader Brandon Dowdy, who only scored 14 points on 5-for-15 accuracy from the floor.

However, the deeper Imperial Valley bench kept the team's lead between 8-to-12 points throughout most of the contest in handing the Griffins a 59-50 setback.
