(2/14) The Grossmont men evened their Pacific Coast Conference record to 7-7 with a thrilling 57-56 win over visiting Imperial Valley College.

The Griffins earned the tough victory despite being out-shot and out-rebounded by forcing turnovers, and getting to the free-throw line.

Charles Conner came off the bench to provide the Griffins with the margin of victory. Conner completed a three-point play to give Grossmont the 57-56 win. Conner finished with seven points, and was a perfect 3-for-3 from the charity stripe.

Chris Coleman made 7-of-12 free-throws en route to a team-high 16 points. The freshman also hauled in nine rebounds.

James Josephson provided the season's best dunk to date late in the first half. Running the left wing on a break just before time expired, Josephson received a pass just beyond the key and proceeded to dunk over an IVC defender. The play provided an exclamation point to the end of a solid half, and brought the crowd to their feet.
