Bakersfield College men's basketball was without leading scorer Jamar Hammonds for the second day in a row. But it didn’t matter on the scoreboard as the trio of Tucker Eenigenburg, Shahadah Camp and Jaylunn English combined for 59 points in BC’s (7-5) 78-57 win over San Jose City College (3-10) on Friday afternoon.
It was a consolation semifinal game in the Allan Hancock College Holiday Classic. BC will play Chabot in the consolation final at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Chabot (2-11) beat LA Southwest (6-9) by one point in triple overtime on Friday.
Though BC sophomore point guard Johnathan Murray only scored 4 points, he dished out 18 assists. That's the most 13-year head coach Rich Hughes has seen in a game while at BC and thinks it's likely a school record.
Together, Eenigenburg, Camp and English shot 48.9 percent from the field and made as many shots as the entire San Jose team did. Eenigenburg and Camp made five and four 3-pointers, respectively, with a 50 percent conversion rate. San Jose didn’t make a 3 in the game.
The Renegades picked up a dominant win against a struggling San Jose team, despite turning the ball over 18 times in the game. After falling behind 50-49, BC went on a 24-2 run to put the game out of reach.
