Photo by James Wilson James Wilson Sports Editor The Feather River College men's basketball team had no problem putting points on the board against College of the Redwoods on Feb. 8; however, neither did Redwoods against FRC. In a tight game that was fast paced and highly offensive, Redwoods took the lead in the final minutes to win 108-103. The Eagles can't seem to catch a break this season. The loss dropped FRC's record to 4-18 for the season and 1-7 since conference play started in early January. Of the seven conference games the Eagles lost, four were within five points and two within 10 points. FRC played catch-up for the majority of the game. Redwoods, led by Johnny Shelton, who scored 28 points, came out fighting and took a small lead that it maintained for most of the game. At hafftime FRC was down 51-44, but surged back in the second half to catch up and take its first lead 79-78. Redwoods hustled to tie FRC's score at 88, then regained its lead, which it maintained for the rest of the game. FRC got into some foul trouble in the final minutes that allowed Redwoods free-throw opportunities that clinched its win. Golden Eagles' Emanuel Zimmerman was a standout for FRC, scoring a personal season high total of 28 points. This season, Zimmerman averaged only six points per game. Prior to Saturday, Zimmerman's highest-scoring game was against Consumnes River with 13 points. Zimmerman was consistently in the mix and made his way to the basket throughout the game. Aaron Brown stood out with his long shot. Brown sank four three-pointers and was in harmony with his short shots and free throws to tally 23 points in total. Three other Feather River players hit the double digits in the high-scoring game. Cal Rutherford scored 18 points, 12 off of three-pointers. Maurice Johnson scored 14 points and Eddie Little contributed 11. FRC's head basketball coach, Randy Rick, was absent from the game due to an ear infection. Assistant coach Joe Pacheco directed the Golden Eagles in Rick's absence. FRC has only two games left in its season.
