Blowout.

The Umpqua Community College men’s basketball team left the Clackamas Cougars way behind in their Northwest Athletic Conference South Region game on Wednesday night at UCC in Winchester.

The Riverhawks remained unbeaten on the season, outscoring Clackamas 56-18 in the second half en route to an 89-44 victory played before no fans due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“It was a little tight in the first half (with UCC leading 33-26),” Umpqua coach Daniel Leeworthy said. “Our defense was excellent, then we exploded (offensively) in the second half. We couldn’t miss, we made seven 3s. We moved the ball better and got better looks, and rebounded much better tonight.

“It was a total team win, the guys played really well. Everyone was able to get court time.”

Eleven UCC players scored, with Trey Johnson and Nathan Webb leading the way with 14 points. Cody Fredrickson (11) also finished in double figures for the Riverhawks (6-0). Marcus Sherwood added nine points and nine rebounds and Will Harris chipped in eight.

Fredrickson made nine assists. UCC outrebounded Clackamas, 60-37.

K’wan Carter had 14 points and eight rebounds and Mathias Nchekwube added seven points for the Cougars (0-3).

Umpqua and Clackamas will meet again on Saturday in Oregon City.
