VPCC Men’s Basketball Ends Slide; Women Fall to Frederick Community College

HAMPTON — The Virginia Peninsula Community College men’s basketball team snapped a seven-game losing streak with an 86-75 victory over Emory Oxford College on Sunday, Jan. 14, while the women’s team lost a hard-fought battle against Frederick Community College on Saturday.

The men won one day after a 104-72 loss to Sandhills Community College. Both games were played at the Sandhills campus in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

Against Emory Oxford Sunday, the Gators took a 42-35 halftime lead. The advantage narrowed to one point before the Gators went on a run to go up by 21. Jaylin Davis led the way with 20 points. Kenny Page added 18 points and five steals, Chris Hayes had 14 points and seven rebounds, and Aidan Breathwaite chipped in 11 points.

On Saturday, in the loss to Sandhills, the Gators fell behind 58-28 at halftime. A more competitive second half was not enough to overcome the big deficit. Braithwaite scored 28 points, and Page added seven points and seven rebounds.

This week, the Gators play Camp CC on Jan. 17 at Lakeland High School, and at Washington Adventist University on Saturday, Jan. 20. The men don’t return home until Feb. 3 for a game against Mountain Gateway. The game will be played at Christopher Newport University.

Women’s Basketball

The women lost 75-71 at home against Frederick Community College on Saturday, Jan. 14. The Gators trailed by 13 points at the half and by 16 in the third quarter. However, Zariia America, Da’Naiyah and Ceire Bell keyed a rally, with the Gators cutting the deficit to one point early in the fourth quarter. They trailed 74-71 with 20 seconds to go, but the visitors sealed the win by sinking one of two free throws with 10 seconds left.

America had 26 points for the Gators, Bell added 17, and Darnell 16.

This week, the women play Christopher Newport University’s club team Saturday, Jan. 20, at CNU. Their next home game is Sunday, Jan. 28, against Central Carolina Community College. Tipoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Warwick High School.
