East County Sports staff report

EL CAJON (12-29-2018) – You can hardly blame Cuyamaca College.

The Coyotes men’s basketball program has been in shambles in recent seasons, entering the weekend with just two victories in their previous 45 contests. So why would one want to post each boxscore n a timely fashion as required by the sports’ governing body, the California Community College Athletics Association.

What can the CCCAA truly do, penalized you further?

But on Friday (Dec. 28), in the opening round of their own tournament, Cuyamaca broke through with its second victory of the season, taking down Victor Valley College, 69-68.

We’d offer you winning details from the victorious Coyotes (2-12), but none were reported.

As Porky Pig used to say to close his cartoons of yesteryear, “That’s all, folks!”

In other tournament scores, Antelope Valley surprised San Diego Miramar, 79-71; Cypress nipped San Diego Mesa (1-12), 72-70; and state-ranked  Los Angeles pounded Santa Ana, 90-70.

Saturday’s action starts at noon with consolation play. The championship semifinals start at 4 p.m. with Antelope Valley meeting Cypress, then Cuyamaca follows by meeting the East L.A. Huskies.
