Men’s basketball season starts off with strong record


Delta College’s men’s basketball team is ready to run the court with a record of 3-1 to start the season.

“The team is improving everyday as we work on putting all the pieces together,” said Head Coach Rich Ressa.

The Mustangs suffered the first loss of the season 81-72 on Nov. 15 to Columbia College.

“There were a lot of distractions in this game,” said Sophomore Forward Jerrel Green.

Sophomore Guard Alex Simmions, is the leading scorer on the team averaging 15.8 points through the first four games this season.

Delta hopes to regain momentum as the team prepares for its upcoming road game against Merced College.

Merced has yet to win a game. The Mustangs take on the team on Nov. 26.
