Pima Community College men’s basketball team (14-8) hosted Glendale Community College (13-9) Saturday in a game that wasn’t close at all besides the beginning stages of the game when the score was 2-3.
Glendale never had a lead in the game and Pima made sure to take advantage of that.
The Aztecs came out strong out the gates against Glendale as the score was already 12-5 with 16:38 left in the first half of the game.
One major factor that was noticeable throughout the game was the Aztecs’ 3-point shooting as the team shot an impressive 58.1% from beyond the arc.
As the game went on, the Aztecs were able to run away with this one by a multitude of scoring runs.
Notable runs were carried out by sophomore Daniel Moody and freshman Griffin Effenberger as they capped off 9-0 runs of their own by scoring three straight 3-point field goals. Both players combined for 10 of the team’s 18 3-pointers.
As a result of these scoring runs, the Aztecs led by 22 at the half with the score being 60-42 as they went into the locker room.
The Aztecs came out a little sluggish in the second half as Glendale cut into the lead, making it 65-48.
Fortunately for the Aztecs, everything seemed to fall into place for them. The team never relinquished the lead and controlled the tempo of the game with hot scoring performances from their shooters.
The biggest lead of the game was 33 points as the Aztecs won by a final score of 114-81, making it two wins in a row.
