CC Men: Raiders Rout Blazers in Offensive Showcase

Pierce College at Centralia College Men's Basketball (Feb. 4)

The Raiders were hitting on all cylinders and the Trailblazers couldn’t find the same kind of rhythm as Pierce defeated Centralia College 96-60 in NWAC West Region play at Michael Smith Gymnasium on Wednesday.

Keaton Corr led all scorers with 30 points for the Raiders, going 6 of 7 from beyond the 3-point arc and 11 of 14 (79 percent) from the field. Jamil Wilson-Jones poured in 25 points for Pierce, adding a pair of dunks in transition to his highlight reel. The Raiders shot 33 of 56 (59 percent) from the floor and 11 of 19 (58 percent) from the 3-point line.

The Trailblazers didn’t fare as well, shooting-wise, going 22 of 62 (36 percent) from the field and just 8 of 28 (29 percent) from the arc. Josiah Warner led the Blazers with 14 points. Calvin Edwards contributed 9 points and six rebounds to the cause. Dylan Fullmer added 9 points on 3 for 6 shooting from the perimeter.

This was the Blazer’s first game without the presence of Zach Carras, who recently suffered a season-ending injury with a high ankle sprain. Carras served as the squad’s leading scorer, averaging 15.7 points per outing.

Centralia (2-19, 1-9 league) will travel to Grays Harbor on Sunday for a 3 p.m. game at Aberdeen High School.
