Cerritos Faces Mt. San Antonio in One-Game Playoff

March 02, 1985

Cerritos College will get its third and final chance to win the South Coast Conference basketball championship tonight when the Falcons play Mt. San Antonio in a one-game playoff for the title at 7:30 tonight at Cypress College.

Cerritos (13-3 in conference and 22-6 overall) needed to win only one of its two remaining regular-season games last week to clinch its third straight championship, but the Falcons were upset by Orange Coast on Saturday and by Cypress on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Mt. San Antonio (13-3, 26-4) beat Cypress and Fullerton to gain a first-place tie.

Cerritos beat Mt. San Antonio in the final minutes of both of their regular-season meetings. In their first game, the Falcons edged the Mounties, 55-51, and in their second game two weeks ago, Cerritos won, 66-64.

The winner of tonight's playoff not only will be the SCC champion, but it will also be a seeded team in the State Community College playoffs that begin in two weeks. The loser will host fifth-place Cypress in a first-round game of the Shaughnessy playoffs on Monday night. Also on Monday, third-place Fullerton plays fourth-place Orange Coast in another first-round Shaughnessy playoff game.
