SPORTS: Peninsula College basketball teams sweep Olympic Rangers

Peninsula Daily News

BREMERTON — The No. 2-ranked Peninsula College men’s basketball team had its way with the Olympic Rangers behind Salim Gloyd’s double-double of 20 points and 20 rebounds.

The Pirates, tied for second place in North with a 4-1 record, 13-5 overall, pounded the Rangers 81-52 at the Ranger Dome in NWAACC North Division action.

Hapless Olympic fell to 0-5 in conference and 1-13 overall.

Olympic guard Michael Gurske hit the first shot of the game to give the Rangers their first and only lead at 3-0.

From that point forward, the Pirates flexed their defensive muscles, overwhelming Olympic.

Peninsula now has won three straight games and 10 of their last 11.

Gloyd led the Pirates with his 20 points and 20 rebounds in just 21 minutes of play.

Matt Visser contributed 16 points off the bench while TreShawn King-Dunbar contributed 10 points and six assists.

The Pirates’ suffocating defense held Olympic to 19 of 73 shooting from the field for just 26 percent.

Peninsula’s 3-point defense was even better, limiting Olympic to 6 of 28 from beyond the arc for 21 percent.

“?We spent the last two days of practice working on defensive discipline, and I believe it showed [in this game],” Peninsula head coach Lance Von Vogt said.

“We played our whole roster considerable minutes, and everyone did a very good job.”

The Pirates’ pressure forced the Rangers into 22 turnovers and created 15 steals for Peninsula, which led to 25 points off of those steals.

“I thought we did a good job capitalizing on the steals we created tonight,” Von Vogt said.

“Anytime Olympic made any kind of run, we were able to turn up the defensive pressure and turn them over and push the lead back out.”

Peninsula also outrebounded Olympic 63-45.

Point guard Daniel Sims missed his third straight game after sustaining an ankle injury with 10 minutes to play in the Edmonds game on Jan. 9.

Peninsula squares off against Shoreline at home Wednesday with the women’s game tipping off at 5 p.m. and the men’s contest following at 7 p.m.

The Shoreline men’s team (1-4, 2-12) utilizes a fast-paced basketball system made famous by the Paul Westhead, Loyola-Marymount University basketball team from the late 1980s.

Shoreline will press 40 minutes and attempt to shoot the ball within 7 seconds of gaining possession throughout the game, resulting in a frenetic pace that is fun to watch.

When the Dolphins visited Peninsula last year, the hometown Pirates beat them at their own game, 121-106, sending the crowd home with smiles on their faces.
