Pensacola State College lost another conference game Saturday, Feb. 2, against Chipola College 66-62.
Three minutes in the game Denzel Richardson, a PSC freshman guard, fouled which resulted in two more points for Chipola.
Not long after, a technical foul was called on Chipola’s Mistor Thomas that allowed PSC’s Dawud Salaam to add two more points to the Pirates scoreboard.
The Pirates were up six points with 5:39 left in the first half, but the Chipola Indians took control in the last few minutes of the half and upped their score by two, making it 29-31.
PSC fought hard in the second half with Qiydor Davis and Richardson sinking two slam dunks to get the crowd going. With all of their energy into the game, the Pirates sped up and down the court, incorporated fresh legs when needed, and fought for a conference win.
It was a tight game, so with 1:12 left Chipola was up by two.
It wasn’t enough to win and PSC fell to the Indians 66-62.
Their next conference home game tips off at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13, with Gulf Coast State College.
