Delta dries up American River, 92-70


The men’s basketball team continued their surge on Feb. 4, dominating American River College throughout the game for a 92-70 win.

Marcus Beaird led the Mustangs with 20 points but no player was more important than James Lake, whose 18 points, constant energy and crowd pleasing plays fueled Delta.

Delta opened up a 12-point lead at the four minute, 38 second mark in the first half thanks to an alley-oop dunk from Pat Livingston to Lake.

The Mustangs then cruised to a 49-36 halftime lead.

Delta College kept a consistent double-digit lead throughout the second and Beaird’s turnaround jumper with four and a half minutes remaining put the Mustangs up by 20 points.

Austin Vonasek led American River with 18 points but it was to no avail as the Mustangs proved to be too much.
