Cougars beat SWOCC, claim league championship
by Mark A. Borrelli
Sports Editor
The Clackamas men’s basket­
ball team completed their Cin­
derella season with a 72-71 vic­
tory over Lane, and with the vic­
tory, the Cougars closed out the
year at 13-1, league champions,
and a number 2 ranking in the
Clackamas, who had their
undefeated season ruined by
Chemeketa at home Wednesday,
felt some pressure, as the Chiefs
only trailed by one game going
into the final game. But as it has
been this season, the Cougars
responded with a solid perform­
ance, and another win that gave
them the league title.
The Cougars, who have made
a living this season with their
quickness and dead-eye shooting,
made believers out of a tot of people
who saw Clackamas claim the
championship. One person who
really wasn’t at all shocked by the
success of his team was Head Coach
Royce Kiser.
“Early in the season I would
have been a little skeptical, but as
the season went along, I knew we
had a good team. Our guys really
work hard. You really have to
give a lot of credit to our guys;
they always found a way to win,”
said Kiser.
An astounding trait the Cou­
gars hold is their ability to win
without size. Clackamas doesn’t
have a man over 6-7, but still hung
tough on the boards with bigger
teams this year. Kiser credits much
of his teams success to hard
work,and team speed.
“We have a lot of quickness,
and our defense is probably a key
to our success. We also seem to
make the big shots when we need
them. We rise to the occasion, and
find a way to win,” said Kiser.
With the win, Clackamas will
be hosting the mini-tournament
which starts Thursday and runs
through Saturday. Clackamas, the
number-one seed, will square off
against Lane, the number-four seed
at 8 p.m.
Cost for the tournament is
$4.00 for adults and $2.00 for stu­
dents. Student body cards will not
be good for admittance to playoff
“I think that we have a good
shot in the tournament,” said guard
Brett Nesland. “We want to get
Lane Thursday, then knock off
Chemeketa Saturday.”
Sophomore guard Troy Mer­
rill feels that his team will be
competitive in the NWAACC
“We have a very good team,
and if we play like we can, there’s
no reason why we can’t win the
whole thing. This is the best men’s
basketball team in the history of
CCC,” said Merrill.
Clackamas has already assured
itself a place in the NWAACC
tourney, which will be hosted by
Walla Walla. The NWAACC
tourney is next Thursday, Friday
and Saturday.

Women end season in first place tie with Umpqua

Contributing writer
The Clackamas women’s bas­
ketball team closed out the regu­
lar season in style by cruising to a
pair of one-sided victories. On
Wednesday, Feb. 14 the Cougs
held their own version of the St.
Valentine’s Day massacre and
demolished Chemeketa 114-47.
After being plagued by slow
starts in recent weeks, tiie Cou­
gars came out blazing. They jumped
to a 58-19 halftime lead and never
looked back.
Clackamas applied relentless
full-court pressure and forced 28
turnovers. Pam Pcmber and Al­
icia Stephenson ruled the boards
with 11 rebounds each. Angela
Hewlett led the Cougars with 30
points and also dished out 11 as­
sists. JJ. Drennen and Kelli Brown
had 15 points each.
The Cougars showed excep­
tional balance by placing six play­
ers in double figures. “Every player
we had dressed down scored,”

Coach Phil Garver said. “It’s nice
when everyone is able to contrib­
ute like that.”
On Saturday Feb. 17 the
Cougars braved a long trip to Coos
Bay to face SWOCC and came
away with an impressive 101-45
“It was one of our best defen­
sive efforts of the season,” Coach
Garver commented. Clackamas
forced SWOCC to turn the ball
over 29 times. “We came out in a
man-to-man and held them with­
out a field goal for the first eight
minutes,” Garver said.
Stephenson dominated the
inside and led the Cougars with 22
points and 13 rebounds. Hewlett
and Brown sparkled from the
backcourt, combining for 19 as­
sists while only turning the ball
over three times.
“To handle the ball as much
as Angela and Kelli do, and only
have three turnovers is incredible,”
Assistant Coach Bruce Toney said.
Clackamas once again found
