The Seahawks saw their season come to an end tonight at the hands of Chabot College in Hayward. Facing the #4 seed after knocking off the #5 seed Yuba College last weekend Cabrillo had a chance to avenge an early season loss to Chabot but came up just short.
The Seahawks got things going early and were able to attack the rim against Chabot creating easy scoring opportunities around the rim and on the perimeter. They would control the tempo and the game for the majority of the first stanza. Allen Wilcher paced Cabrillo in the first half scoring 17 points as Cabrillo went into the break leading 36-35.
Chabot came out of intermission firing, would take the lead on their first possession of the half and push that lead to as many as 10 on multiple occasions before Warren Jackson would help lead the Seahawks back. Jackson would score 20 points in the 2nd half alone including a lay up with 10 seconds left to cut the lead to 1pt , 73-74. Cabrillo was unable to foul in the ensuing in bounds play, Chabot would score on the break and take a 76-73 lead with just under 2 seconds left. Latrell Wilson's desperation heave would fall short as the final horn would sound and Chabot would advance to the next round.
Jackson would lead all scorers with 24 points, Wilcher had 23 and Wilson finished with 13 for the Seahawks who finish the season 20-9.
Game 28 - CABRILLO COMES UP BIG ON THE ROAD...
In the first round of the state playoffs Cabrillo took to the road, braved the bad weather and drove the 4 hrs to Marysville to face off with the #5 seed Yuba College. Yuba Champions of the Bay Valley Conference had a packed house waiting for Cabrillo, and the Seahawks had a trio of All Conference Freshman who were ready for the challenge. Latrell Wilson would start out with the hot hand and knocked down 6 threes in the first half to pace Cabrillo to a 37-30 lead at the break.
The second half saw Cabrillo's lead grow to 13 on several occasions, but with 11 minutes to go Yuba would get hot and make a run of their own. With the score tied at 79, Latrell Wilson would make his 8th three of the night, giving Cabrillo the lead 82-79. On the next possession Yuba would grab an offensive rebound with 11 seconds to go and find a wide open shooter on the wing, and just like that the score was knotted up at 82. David Abittan got a great look at the buzzer but wasn't able to knock it down as the game went into overtime.
In the overtime period Cabrillo capitalized from the free throw line going 7-9 as a team while Yuba struggled going 4-11. When the final horn sounded Cabrillo came away with a hard fought 95-88 victory. Leading the charge was Warren Jackson with a game high 31 points, Wilson finished with 29 and Allen Wilcher added 18 for Cabrillo.
