Basketball club defeats Lee College in season opener

Posted on: February 24, 2012

College of the Mainland’s Club Basketball Team won its inaugural basketball game with an emphatic 62-51 victory over Lee College on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at COM Gym.

Greg Wilson, a Texas City High School graduate, led the Fighting Ducks (1-0) with 15 points and seven rebounds.

“It was very impressive,” COM coach Michael Richardson said. “The guys went out there and played hard. They enjoyed themselves. There was a little energy in the gym.”

Wilson wasn’t the only former Stingaree to shine for the Fighting Ducks. TCHS alums Jared Galvan and Torell Johnson finished with nine and eight points, respectively. Galvan also contributed two rebounds and two steals.

La Marque High School alums were well represented, too. Chris Rellford had 10 points and five rebounds, while Melvin Martin finished with six points and three rebounds. Evan Holloway recorded four points and six rebounds.

COM’s Fighting Ducks are expected to face Lee in Baytown later this semester but a date hasn’t been set yet.
