Orcas finish regular season with win


Whatcom Community College's men's basketball team ended its regular season by steamrolling Shoreline 97-66 on Saturday, Feb. 22, at Shoreline.

The Orcas started quickly, scoring 50 points in the first half and didn't let up in the second.

Kyle Impero led WCC with 27 points, but Alex Duncan led the team in rebounds, with 11, and assists, with six. Duncan also scored four points.

Eric Fongue (19) and Neilan Pierce (15) were WCC's only other scorers in double figures.

The Orcas finish the regular season 18-6 overall and 11-3 in the NWAACC north region. Their seeding for the NWAACC tournament is yet to be determined. With Skagit Valley and Bellevue's final records still to be decided, it could be a three-way tie for first place and the No. 1 seed.
