The Olympic College men’s and women’s basketball teams have hit a rough patch and will need to find a way out of it soon if they want to continue past the regular season.
The Rangers dropped a doubleheader to Bellevue College Wednesday at Bremer Student Center. The women lost to the Bulldogs 77-66 while the men lost 85-69.
The Ranger women (3-11 overall, 3-3 North) were paced by the strong play of guard Libby Borgonia. The South Kitsap graduate finished with 25 points, who was 9-of-15 from the field and 6-of-10 from 3-point range. Guard/forward Lexi Ioane had 17 points and seven rebounds, and Danielle Monzon also had seven rebounds and 13 points.
The men struggled against Bellevue and couldn’t stop the Bulldogs who had their way offensively.
After such a hot start to the season, the Ranger men have lost their last three games and are now 2-5 in the North (12-8 overall.)
Sam Gagliardi led the Rangers with 16 points while Aaron Stuart and Ryan Mobley each had 13 points. Jarious Williams chipped in 10 points.
