Men’s basketball: Peninsula men sweep at Triton-Pirates tourney

The Peninsula College men blew out two both opponents at the Triton-Pirate Classic at Edmonds Community College this weekend, crushing Grays Harbor 75-52 on Dec. 10 and beating Centralia handily 86-61 on Dec. 9.

Colby Jackson had a great game against Grays Harbor, scoring 22 points with eight assists. Kaelin Crane added 15 points, while Cole Huish had nine points on 3 for 5 shooting from beyond the 3-point line. The Pirates showed good depth with Marky Adams scoring eight and James Buckley and Eli’sha Sheppard each scoring seven. Trent Warren added 12 rebounds.

Against Centralia, the Pirates dominated the boards and got a great performance from Warren in storming to a big 86-61 win.

Warren had a double-double with 23 points and 12 rebounds. He shot 8 for 11 from the floor, including 4 for 7 from beyond the 3-point line.

Sheppard also scored 12 points and pulled down nine boards, while Jackson had a full stat-line with 13 points, six assists and five steals. Crane had 11 points and Buckley eight points. Adams added six points and eight rebounds.

Other than Warren, the Pirates didn’t shoot particularly well in the Centralia game, but it didn’t matter because they dominated so thoroughly on the boards. The Pirates had 47 rebounds to just 25 for Centralia, leading to 75 Peninsula shots and just 54 for Centralia.
