Photo by Brian Taylor The Feather River College men's basketball team re- mains tied for first place in the Golden Valley Confer- ence race, with four games remaining. The Golden Eagles defeat- ed Lassen College 87-60 in Su- sanville Feb. 3, and conclud- ed the week with an enter- taining 94-65 win over Butte College at home last Satur- day. Feather River plays at home this evening, Feb. 10, against College of the Siskiy- ous. The women's game starts at 5:30 p.m. and the men will tip offat 7:30 p.m. Against Lassen, the Gold- en Eagles outscored the host Cougars 50-29 in the second half to secure the victory. Adrian Nelson, FRC's 6- foot, 7-inch forward, scored 18 points and hauled down 17 rebounds, while teammate Michael Harvey set two ca- reer highs with 27 points and 21 rebounds. "Michael Harvey has joined an elite group of ath- letes that have recorded 20 or more rebounds," said FRC head coach Randy Rick. Past FRC standouts in that group include Jose Taylor, Larry Brackins, Tevis Jones and Earl Moore. Last Saturday, Feather River hosted Butte College, the only conference team that had defeated the Golden Eagles this year. FRC controlled the game from the tip off by dominat- ing the boards and the tempo of the game. "In our first game against Butte, we played right into their tempo, losing 52-57," said Rick. "Since then, we have picked up the pace, scoring over 90 points a game." Sophomore guard Nathan Ray dominated the first half by pushing the ball and at- tacking the rim to keep con- stant pressure on the Road- runners. Jamie Washington, the 6- foot, 3-inch freshman, made several impact plays and came down with 13 re- bounds, while sharp shooter Leonardo Fontana hit three of four 3-pointers. Michael Harvey led FRC's scoring with 20 points. Thur- ley Love, FRC's 6-foot, 6-inch forward, contributed 15 points by making seven of eight from the field. "Thurley Love played his best game of the year, mak- ing huge plays above the rim," said Rick. "Thurley is one of the greatest athletes I've ever seen, and he's con- stanfly getting better." Guard Aaron ShePard showed his quickness by blowing past Butte defenders in the second half to help FRC solidify the win. The Golden Eagles will make up a home game against College of the Red- woods Tuesday Feb. 16.

The race was originally scheduled to be giant slalom, but it was changed at the last minute to slalom. Many of the racers brought their GS skis instead of their slalom skis, so they had to use their play skis for the races.

The men's race was won by Chester's Moises McCul- loch. Michael Pixler took fourth, Logan Hitt placed 16th and Natty Brockway finished 19th.
